One of the most beloved young adult series of the past decade is drawing to a fiery close. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 just released its first full-length trailer, and Katniss means some serious business.

A continuation of Mockingjay- Part 1, this film picks up with Katniss, Peeta, Gale and the rest of the gang ready to take on a revolution against the tyrannous Capitol. Many past favourites join in the revolution, including Haymitch, Effie, Finnick and Johanna, as well as new faces like President Coin and Commander Lyme.

Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth reprise their roles as the love triangle hell-bent on taking down Snow, along with Julianne Moore, Donald Sutherland, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, and Natalie Dormer. Jena Malone and Sam Claflin also star.

This new trailer is a lot to take in, but we did catch some fierce trident action from Finnick and a lot of flaming arrows. »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2: watch the first full length trailer

23 July 2015 9:09 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Jennifer Lawrence plays Katniss Everdeen for the last time in the battle-focused final chapter Mockingjay – Part 2

The final chapter in the Hunger Games franchise hits cinemas in November and after a tease last month, the full-length trailer for Mockingjay – Part 2 has now arrived.

The film version of the last book in the Ya series was split into two parts, the first of which arrived to a slightly muted response last year – but the conclusion hopes to bring back audiences who were scared off. (In fact, Mockingjay – Part 1 took more than $100m less worldwide than its predecessor, Catching Fire). Jennifer Lawrence returns as Katniss Everdeen, who leads a revolution all the way to the evil President Snow’s front door. Returning cast members also include Julianne Moore, Elizabeth Banks and Woody Harrelson.

Emmys mystery: Could alphabetical ballot explain surprise nominations and shocking snubs?

22 July 2015 6:33 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Several weeks ago I proposed a theory suggesting that a performer's placement in the alphabet affected their chances of being nominated at the Emmys. The more options there are in a category, the sooner the slate will fill up with names from the start of the ballot. Depending on the number of contenders, those with names starting between A and F have a strong advantage while those in the second half of the alphabet are at a disadvantage. While this does not dictate every nominee, it explains who might be ahead in a tight race. -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders With half of all the nominees this year showing up in the first third of the ballot, there were a lot of shocks, including: A Alan Alda ("The Blacklist") Pamela Adlon ("Louie") Khandi Alexander ("Scandal") Anthony Anderson ("Black-ish") B Elizabeth Banks ("Modern Family") Rachel Brosnahan (...' »
