Katniss Unites Panem in the First Trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 2
The march to the Capitol is officially underway with the release of the first official trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt.2. Following the events of Mockingjay Pt.1, Katniss, fans (who haven't read the books) have been left with an anxious wait to see how the assault on the Capitol will pan out. But, following a teaser which screened before Insurgent earlier this year, this full trailer represents our best look yet at how the Hunger Games saga will reach its climax.



One thing the trailer makes clear is that the Katniss of Mockingjay Pt.2 is going to be very different from the Katniss we saw in the last movie. The indecision and emotional turmoil appears to have been replaced with a single-minded determination, which is all focused on bringing down Panem's big bad, President Snow. With her new-found focus, Katniss is able to unite the people of Panem and finally create a movement that may just be powerful enough to take on their oppressors in the Capitol, but as the the trailer shows, any assault on the maze-like city is going to be a perilous one, with Finnick Odair going as far as calling it the 76th Hunger Games.

Other than the action, one of the stand-out moments in the trailer was the brief glimpse of Gwendoline Christie as Commander Lyme. It's not certain how big of a role the Game of Thrones actress will play in the movie, but we do know that we'll get to see her teaming up with Jennifer Lawrence and the other members of the rebellion. Christie, who is also set to appear as Captain Phasma in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, was signed onto Mockingjay Pt.2 as a replacement for American Horror Story star, Lily Rabe, had to drop out of the role due to a scheduling conflict.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt.2 hits theaters on November 20th 2015.
