Katniss Burns Bright in New ‘Mockingjay’ Poster and Trailer
Hunger Games fans got two gifts today (September 15) as they await the premiere of Mockingjay Part 2, the final installment in the movie version of the YA trilogy: A new poster and another trailer.
Jennifer Lawrence shared the new promo image on Facebook, in which Katniss looks regally into the middle distance with a mockingjay perched on her shoulder, wearing bright-red armor and her signature braid. The tagline reads, "A creature as unquenchable as the sun," which is a line from the book (and one that I always found kind of awkwardly worded, as metaphors go). It's from Katniss' narration — she's understandably VERY emo in Mockingjay, given all that's happened and the fact that her best friend Peeta has been brainwashed against her — and it comes at a very pivotal moment in the action.
That moment is loosely related to the new trailer as well, which is devoted to the bond between Katniss and her sister Prim. The Hunger Games series begins with Katniss volunteering as tribute to save her little sister, but during the wartime events that transpired during Panem's resistance against the Capitol, Prim's grown much stronger and has become a gifted healer like her mother. Still, she remains a source of inspiration for Katniss, and their relationship plays a major role in the (bloody, emotional) second half of Mockingjay.
Mockingjay Part 2 hits theaters on November 20.
