“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” new trailer will definitely make you cry.
Lionsgate released the latest teaser for the final installment of “Hunger Games” franchise and it featured the bond between sisters Katniss and Primrose Everdeen.
The relationship between Katniss, played by Jennifer Lawrence, and Prim, played by Willow Shields, has evolved from the first “Hunger Games” film and to the succeeding sequels, ABC News noted.
In the trailer, Katniss tells President Snow: “I never asked for this. I just wanted to save my sister and keep Peeta alive.” Snow replied: “It’s the things we love most that destroy us.”
Earlier this year, director Francis Lawrence hinted that the upcoming sequel will be the darkest “Hunger Games” film ever. He however assured that they are making efforts to keep the movie at PG-13 rating.
“What I tried to do was focus on the emotional consequences of violence, and not the blood, guts, carnage and shock value of it. A lot of violence is implied,” he told Entertainment Weekly.
The new trailer, titled “For Prim,” also featured clips taken from previous “Hunger Games” movies including tear-jerking moments such as the time when Katniss volunteered to take Prim’s place as the tribute of District 13, E! Online wrote.
In addition to Lawrence and Shields, other stars that will reprise their respective roles are: Donald Sutherland (President Snow), Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark), Woody Harrelson (Haymitch Abernathy), Elizabeth Banks (Effie Trinket), Sam Claflin (Finnick Odair), and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman (Plutarch Heavensbee).
Aside from the new trailer, “Hunger Games” also announced that tickets for “Mockingjay Part 2” will go on sale on October 1 at 12pm ET/9 am PT.
According to Deadline, those who will buy tickets in the first 24 hours will also receive a digital download of “”The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1”. It added that a Fandango survey showed “Mockingjay 2” has been voted as the most anticipated film of the fall.
