Lionsgate have today unveiled the official teaser trailer for their upcoming dystopian fantasy motion picture The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 to the world at large.
Set directly after the events of last November's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, this much-anticipated final instalment's narrative chronicles the explosive final battle between Katniss Everdeen's ever-growing legion of vengeful rebels and the increasingly ruthless President Snow, whose tyranny only recently transformed Katniss' comrade Peeta into a seemingly psychologically warped shadow of his former self.
As has long been expected given the action-centric nature of the second half of Suzanne Collins' final Hunger Games novel, Part 2 looks set to boast far more in the way of high-octane set-pieces than its predecessor or indeed than either 2012's The Hunger Games or 2014's Catching Fire. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 proved way back in 2011 that more thrills can come at the expense of genuine heart, of course, yet based on this particular franchise's historical precedent (not to mention the sustained presence of accomplished thespians such as the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore and Game of Thrones veteran Gwendoline Christie in the aforementioned marketing material), there's ample reason to believe that an increase in the ante of proceedings won't so much weaken the overall piece as lend its storyline a much-needed sense of momentum akin to that clearly propelling Katniss into battle this time around.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 will launch its revolutionary campaign in UK cinemas nationwide (as well as across the rest of the globe) this November 20th.
