The first teaser trailer for ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay â€“ Part 2′ has debuted with Jennifer Lawrence returning as Katniss Everdeen along with costarsLiam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark. It’s our first tantalizing look of the hotly anticipated final installment of the hugely popular franchise.
As is usually the case these days, this teaser trailer had teaser trailers of its own; perhaps we can even say there were previews of the teasers of the teaser itself. But at long last, we’ve got our first glimpse!
Directed by Francis Lawrence, ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay â€“ Part 2′ is greatly anticipated as it is the last turn for the familiar characters on the big screen. Our expectations are primed further as the voice over intones, â€œThis November comes the event the world has been waiting for.”
Yes, we are waiting! And yes, we are back in familiar territory as the trailer plunges us into the action. More than mere action, this is war. Jennifer Lawerence’s Katiss speaks of President Snow, and says â€œHe corrupts everyone and everything. He turns the best of us against each other.”
And with that the battle has begun. The rebels are not taking any more oppression and we see them as they begin their assault upon the capitol which has been the epicenter of such pain and hardship.
‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay â€“ Part 2′ has been quite a cultural phenomena. It’s a ponderous science fiction franchise in the very best sense that has raised important societal discussions without being didactical. It served to launch the careers of its principal stars, particularly Jennifer Lawrence who has emerged as one of Hollywood’s most beloved young stars for her brashness and candor. Once again we’ll be seeing her in that empowering female heroine role that she has so famously embodied. But now, we’re coming to the end of the silver screen road.
The movie also stars Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci, and Julianne Moore. It opens in theaters in November. Watch the first ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay â€“ Part 2′ teaser trailer video below!
