'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2': Two TV spot trailers coming; fans can enjoy six-minute VR game


Lionsgate has released two short clips for the final installment of the widely popular franchise, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” that will air as TV spots on some major channels.

The first one titled “Her Story” opens with Katniss Everdeen’s journey from the first movie as she hunts in the woods with Gale Hawthorne, to being introduced by Caesar Flickerman as the “Girl on Fire” to the Capitol.

Peeta Mellark also comes into the picture, giving an advice which goes: “If you end all of this, our lives [all those deaths], they mean something.” Katniss then quips with “We can take down the Capitol” while images show the elite group of fighters Squad 451 penetrating the city and facing booby traps sets in different places. The footage ended with Johanna Mason saying, “Now you’re talking.”

The second trailer titled “Final Battle,” Katniss is with Cinna in preparation for her first venture to Hunger Games. She does the three-finger salute by District 12 which then became one of the rebellion’s symbols. Alma Coin can be heard in the background saying, “Katniss Everdeen, a small town girl from District 12 who survived the Hunger Games and turned our nation of slaves into an army.”

Katniss then says to the people, “Turn your weapons to the Capitol” while the antagonist President Snow ominously warns, “The game is coming to its end.”

The two videos were unveiled shortly after the studio alongside Samsung premiered the official longer trailer in Best Buys across the country.

They are also giving a sneak peek to a new virtual reality game that offers a six-minute, 360-degree immersive journey to some of the defining moments from all movies using Samsung Gear VR headset.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is slated to premiere on November 20 in theaters and IMAX.
