While the newest trailer for the final installment of The Hunger Game movies, Mockingjay Part 2, is mostly made up of clips from the first three films, it is nonetheless emotionally evocative, and does an effective job of showing us what exactly Katniss Everdeen has to lose in the war against the Capitol.
The relationship most media tends to focus on in The Hunger Game series – not unlike The Capitol in this respect – is the one between Katniss and Peeta. But this new trailer really brings to light the most important relationship in Katniss’s life: the one with her little sister, Primrose. All Katniss has ever done is to protect and take care of her sister, and Prim is one of the few people in any District who understands Katniss the best. Thankfully, this trailer focuses on all aspects of their relationship.
With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale, Finnick, and Peeta – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow, who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The deadly 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 comes to theaters November 20.
