‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2’ Trailer Released: ‘The Game is Coming to Its End’

Will we ever see Jennifer Lawrence as a brunette again? That’s the burning question. Lionsgate came out with an early release for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 trailer. A previous cut showed up at Comic-Con, but this one apparently has different music.

Over some setup shots, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) ominously intones “Make no mistake. The game is coming to its end.” “And so is the money train,” he should’ve added. The franchise has brought in over five billion dollars. That’s a lot of cocaine. Mountains and mountains of it. Why not milk this forever? The Hunger Games 17 – This Time, The Game Really Ends. We Swear.

There’s a shot of Plutarch Heavensbee played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. Not sure how he got in the movie since Hoffman is dead. Did they reanimate him? Maybe it’s CGI.

President Snow, evidently, has turned the city into a minefield of traps. It’s up to Lawrence to overcome these traps and she says “We’ve got one shot.” Then she busts into Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”. Lawrence implores the city to “turn your weapons against the Capitol. Turn your weapons against Snow.” An epic showdown between President Snow and Lawrence awaits.

Hard to imagine this franchise coming to an end. She was a kid when she first began it seems like. Half of Lawrence’s films have been blockbuster, action movies, The X-Men movies, these Hunger Game movies. She did Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. Coming up she has Joy with Bradley Cooper and Passengers which sounds good. She’s one of the few bankable stars. Kudos to her for not going off the rails like Lindsay Lohan, ending it in drunk driving episodes and a bunch of blow up her nose. Amazing someone with her fame coming out of the Hollywood machine unscatched.
