A brand new Mockingjay Part II trailer was released today and it looks absolutely heart racing. From the trailer it looks like things are picking up right where Part I ended and boy are they heating up.
I’m super excited for this last installment of the Hunger Games franchise. So far the Mockingjay installment has been my favorite of the series. Something was missing from my chest when the lights went up after Part I. I was incredibly moved. The second part is bound to be just as breath taking.
This is a film America really needs to see right now. With the parallels of police brutality and class struggle between Panem and our own world, Mockingjay sends a powerful message. We need to unite as people and overthrow that which oppresses us. While a film franchise is hardly the solution to these problems, it raises awareness and gives the public a vessel through which to learn. Mockingjay Part II couldn’t come soon enough.
Mockingjay Part II hits theaters Nov. 20.

Katniss, played by Jennifer Lawrence, is seen in the poster looking svelte in a red outfit that is sure to kill. The ‘fit also comes with a set of matching arrows. To die for.
The teaser shows Miss Everdeen standing on the District 12 statue and then a cutaway to a message from District 13.
The marketing for this franchise is incredibly clever, mirroring the same tactics Panem and President Snow use to instill fear in the people. Too bad for him because the rebellion is here, and it is looking really good.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 will be in theater November 20th, 2015.
Mockingjay Part 2 doesn’t come out for a while, but that didn’t stop the teaser-trailer from dropping almost 6 months early.
And holy hell, does this movie look depressing. I am an avid fan of the books, but was of the opinion that splitting the last book up into two movies (and yeah, I know it was to milk the money) was BAD idea.
It isn’t because I hate the idea of studios stealing money from viewers, although this is also true, but more so because the second half of the book Mockingjay is really, really sad. There is no way the “happy ending” will make up for all the devastation about to occur in this movie. I’m not a huge fan of sad moment after sad moment, so Mockingjay Part 2 will have to do a little bit of fleshing out in order to make this a movie aimed to the same tween audience it has been attracting for years.
Anyway, I leave you with the trailer and a three-finger salute.
Mockingjay Part 2 will be in theaters November 20th, 2015.
