For four years now THE HUNGER GAMES franchise has been slowly building up towards the eventual district rebellion against the Capitol. With the billion dollar franchise set to end this year with THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 2, the time for war is finally here, and a new poster shows that Katniss is taking aim.
This poster has been revealed for the franchise’s finale, showcasing Katniss in the Mockingjay pose. It’s a stirring image, especially since the franchise has seen this emblem evolve over the years. Having Katniss, the symbol of rebellion, take the place of the Mockingjay feels like a natural movement for the series. As much as I like this poster, am I the only one who can’t help but see Jennifer Lawrence as some weird cupid in this poster?
THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 2 is set to be a huge film, that hasn’t seem to have had much of a marketing push. There have only been a few trailers, and a handful of posters. Maybe Lionsgate thinks the franchise is big enough that they don’t have to market the film much? Either way, check out the fantastic poster below the official synopsis:
With the nation of Panem in a full-scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.
THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 2 opens in cinemas November 19. The film is directed by Francis Lawrence, and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Natalie Dormer, Donald Sutherland, Stanley Tucci, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore, and Elizabeth Banks.
