After weeks of being teased with posters, images, and much more, the first full-length trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is finally here! And although it’s been a long wait since last November, it was definitely worth the wait as the trailer punches us right in the mouth with everything we’ve come to expect from these movies and much, MUCH more.
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.
Man oh man oh man. Beautiful, electrifying, intense, striking, just AWESOME. I haven’t read the books so I don’t know a whole lot about what’s going to happen, but I expect certain things and to see a TON of action and damn did this trailer deliver. And just as the trailer expresses, it’s definitely going to be an epic conclusion. I’ve really come to enjoy the hell out of these movies, what they stand for and how they deliver time after time (less for Mockingjay – Part 1) is just remarkable. I cannot freaking wait to see this all go down, it’s going to be a damn good time.
