Katniss and her gang of rebels are finally getting their hands on President Snow in the 4th and final chapter of The Hunger Games. Or at least that’s what it looks like in the trailers.
Three movies and more than $2.3 billion later we’ve come to the conclusion of another young-adult adaptation. It’s strange because it’s only been a bit over three and a half years since this all started, yet it feels like The Hunger Games has been going for much longer. Two good movies and a mediocre one can probably do that to you, and don’t get me wrong, I still think that as far as young-adult films go The Hunger Games is absolutely on top, and has been since Harry Potter finished its run. The point is I’m glad it’s finally over, and hopefully it will end on a high note.
Now here’s one last challenge for all the fans out there, in order for The Hunger Games to become the 2nd highest grossing young-adult series of all time, Mockingjay Part 2 needs to make over $1 billion worldwide. That’s unlikely but not impossible.
Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Julianne Moore, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Hemsworth, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci, Natalie Dormer, Donald Sutherland and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman star in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2. Francis Lawrence directed a screenplay by Peter Craig and Danny Strong, based on the novel “Mockingjay” by Suzanne Collins.
The games begin November 20th in the US and around the world.
