New 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Trailer Ignites
Jennifer Lawrence returns as the girl on fire
The first full-length Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 trailer has debuted. A teaser trailer was shown at Comic-Con, but the new trailer for Lionsgate's upcoming third installment in the hit YA franchise gives fans a much better look at what the rebellion will look like.
Jennifer Lawrence returns as Katniss Everdeen. But instead of fighting in the deadly games, she will be leading the rebels against the corrupt government, The Capitol. Directed by Francis Lawrence, Mockingjay is an adaptation of the first half of Suzanne Collins' third book. It also stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Mockingjay — Part 1 hits theaters on November 21, with tickets going on sale on Oct. 29 at 9 a.m. PST/12 noon EST.
The final installment, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2, will hit theaters one year later, on November 20, 2015.
The Hunger Games franchise has been a giant at the box office. The previous installment, Catching Fire, was released in Nov. 2013 and went on to become the top grossing film of the year in North America, earning $424.7 million. Worldwide, it grossed $864.6 million.
