Lionsgate has released the final poster for THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 2, and it…looks a whole lot like what we’ve seen before. Don’t get me wrong, the folks behind the HUNGER GAMES publicity campaign have come up with some really cool imagery over the years, and some of the recent MOCKINGJAY 2 posters have been visually striking — like the image of Katniss standing tall on a fallen President Snow, or Katniss working the hell out of an ivory throne. This is just essentially leaning really hard into the flaming Mockingjay motif and retreading familiar ground. But hey look, Katniss is straight up the Mockingjay now.
I guess you could say the poster is a return to the franchise roots, and really, they could release the lamest poster of al time and I would still be excited for MOCKINGJAY PART 2. The final installment promises to be an absolutely epic conclusion to the story of Katniss and her hard-won revolution.
Francis Lawrence brings the franchise to a close when THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 2 arrives in theaters on November 20th, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, and Donald Sutherland.
