It’s sad, yes, but The Hunger Games franchise is officially coming to an end this November following four very successful years. The concluding act of Mockingjay – Part 2 looks like it’ll be the exact kind of concluding act we’ve always wanted, something that will be a serious cinematic experience.
We’ve seen the trailers, the images, and the character posters, but one thing has been missing up until to this point, the films final poster. Through the franchise, the release of that movies official poster has almost been an event, something that is counted down to. With each entry, we’ve gotten a different look at the franchise lead Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence. And although each of the first three posters have been pretty great, the final poster for Mockingjay – Part 2 easily stands out of the bunch.
Just as its predecessors, the poster features Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, as she truly takes flight as the Mockingjay. I’ll be honest, it’s a pretty damn gorgeous poster. Posters are always at their best when they capture the spirit of the movie or a specific character in one single frame, and this poster obviously does both of those. Although I’m a little bit over the red war suit that’s just for marketing, I can’t take my eyes off of the thing. It tells you everything you need to know before going into the film, and also continues what the trailers have been building towards.
If you’re a fan of the books of the movies, you know what to expect come the time to watch the movie. But if you haven’t read the books or aren’t super into the movies, let me just tell you that Mockingjay – Part 2 will be (if it stays true to the books) a serious war movie with major consequences. It was only hinted at in Mockingjay – Part 1, but this is what the entire franchise has been building towards from the beginning, so I’m really hoping the pay-off is as epic as it should be.
