The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 Still 8 - H 2014

The final installment returns to the giant-screen format that was used for the first two movies.

Imax will return to the The Hunger Games with Mockingjay — Part 2, which will be digitally supersized and released in Imax 3D on Nov. 20.

The giant-screen exhibitor struck box-office gold with the original Hunger Games movie and the Catching Fire sequel. But Imax then skipped Mockingjay — Part 1 in favor of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar.

"It's exciting to be back in the Hunger Games world and once again team up with our partners at Lionsgate, director Francis Lawrence and producers Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik on what we believe will be a thrilling, action-packed finale to this blockbuster franchise," Imax Entertainment CEO Greg Foster said in a statement.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 will see Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), with the nation of Panem in a full-scale war, confronting President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown. Liam Hemsworth, Sam Claflin and Josh Hutcherson also return for the final installment of the hit series.
