New Logo and Teaser Poster Revealed for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2

The_Hunger_Games_Mockingjay_Part_2_Teaser_Poster(PCM) Lionsgate released a new teaser poster and logo for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 via EW today, eight months ahead of the final chapter’s release in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D theaters nationwide on November 20, 2015.

The logo, presented in a video titled “Remember,” is Katniss’s Mockingjay, the symbol of the revolution, transforming through flames from the Mockingjay pin Katniss wore during the first Hunger Games to an unpinned, wings-outstretched fierce Mockingjay.

Memorable and important quotes from the first three films reverberate throughout “Remember” while the Mockingjay transforms, mirroring the transformation of revolution leader Katniss Everdeen as she has battled her way to the Capitol. Check it out below!

The epic global phenomenon of The Hunger Games arrives at its powerful final chapter with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 – in which Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) now fully realizes the stakes are no longer just for survival, they are for the future.

With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss Everdeen confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown.

Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off mission, using the unit from District 13 – and risking their lives – to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow increasingly obsessed with destroying her, the mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay Peter Craig and Danny Strong, based on the international best selling trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Lawrence, Craig, and Strong are reprising their roles from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, so the second part of Mockingjay should resemble its predecessor in tone and style.

Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone with Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland are all reprising their original roles from The Hunger Games while Julianne Moore, Mahershala Ali, Natalie Dormer, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Evan Ross are joining the cast.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D theaters nationwide starting November 20, 2015. Visit Facebook for more info!
