You know nothing, President Snow!
It was only a matter of time before the Internet produced a soul brave, funny, and skilled enough to combine the two Snows of "The Hunger Games" and "Game of Thrones" -- and that time is now. Enter David Elmaleh, whose spoof trailer "The Hunger Game of Thrones: Jon Snow Must Die" is the best thing you'll see this week.
It's perfect. It fits so well, you'd think "Hunger Games" writer Suzanne Collins and "Game of Thrones" series author George R.R. Martin planned for this mashup the entire time. In the 1-minute, 22-second trailer, the synopsis teases, "Katniss Everdeen faces off against President Snow...Jon Snow." We hear Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss whisper, "Nothing good is safe while Snow's alive" while Kit Harington's HBO Snow is shown in his icy terrain. The battle and speech shots really do seem to belong together, and it »

And so it comes down to this... With Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and the rest of the rebels finally ready to storm the Capitol in their attempt to overthrow the despotic, if well-dressed regime of President Snow (Donald Sutherland), the final chapter of the Hunger Games cinematic saga can begin. Point your eyes towards the new trailer for Mockingjay – Part 2 below.While the first film in this two-part finale appeared to suffer from adapting the quieter, more discussion-led part of Suzanne Collins’ concluding third tome, Part 2 promises the shift to action we were denied before.Of course, taking the fight to the Capitol will by no means be an easy thing, with Katniss, Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and the gang facing all manner of fiendish traps and creatures devised by Snow for just such an occasion. And he’s more in control of events than even she realises...There’s a »
The game is coming to its end, but who will emerge the victor?
The final official trailer for "Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2" is here, and make no mistake - blood will be shed, lives will be lost, and Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) will fight until the bitter end to triumph over the evil President Snow (Donald Sutherland).
Most of the footage is stuff we've already seen before (Finnick's wedding, Katniss and crew running from the toxic oil), but there are some new glimpses at the movie - more gunfights and explosions, a bit of Patina Miller as Commander Paylor, and the dreaded parachutes floating down.

Ear-splitting white drumming by men in white heralded the start of the "Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 2" panel at Comic-Con. Footage showing the new trailer—which won't be shared with the world quite yet—followed, along with piercing screams. The trick with the finale is that the reluctant heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence)—garbed in resplendent red with a long bow over her shoulder against all her white rebel warriors—gets to become an active leader, hell-bent to destroy Panem's despotic President Snow (Donald Sutherland). She's goes into total warrior mode in this one, which finally delivers some action to the fans of the Suzanne Collins novels and the "Hunger Games" series. The trailer showed plenty of bloody battles, as the movie opens out of dank underground depression and out into open vistas shot in Paris and Berlin. Clearly, everyone enjoyed moving into resolution mode. "The world opened up for us and the characters, »

Yesterday, Lionsgate held their Hall H panel for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 at Comic-Con, where a new trailer debuted exclusively for the Sdcc fans. The panel was hosted by Conan O'Brien, who later had stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth on his late night talk show Conan, which has been broadcasting from Sdcc this week. During their interview, the host asked this trio of young stars if they've heard anything about the rumors of prequels and/or sequels being developed to continue the franchise, when Josh Hutcherson gave an interesting answer, blurting out a confirmation.
The actor then covered his mouth as a wide-eyed Jennifer Lawrence looked on. After realizing what he had done, the actor had this to say.
"I'm sorry, I can't say that. We'll see what happens."
It's worth noting that Josh Hutcherson wasn't the first one to spill the beans. »
Thousands of fans camped out to watch an emotional Jennifer Lawrence and the cast of “Hunger Games” take one final bow in Hall H on Thursday afternoon.
Lawrence, who admitted being press shy having not done an interview in over a year, revealed to the audience that she actually broke down and cried on the first day of shooting “Mockingjay: Part 2,” the fourth and final installment in Lionsgate’s hit franchise.
“These movies changed my life,” she said. “I feel like it will always be a part of me.”
Co-star Josh Hutcherson added: “It’s been the most incredible movie making experience,” before thanking the fans for supporting the $2.2 billion franchise.
“I’m really pleased with the film and the way it ends,” the filmmaker said of the “Mockingjay” finale. »

Comic-Con got off to a rousing start this year, with the Hall H panel for Lionsgate's highly-anticipated franchise finale The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, opening in theaters nationwide November 20. The panel essentially marks a farewell to the franchise, for now at least, since there have been rumblings of prequels and/or spinoffs being developed within this universe, created by author Suzanne Collins. As expected, Lionsgate debuted a new trailer during the panel, but, unfortunately, it won't be online for quite some time. But we do have a description of the footage that was shown.
The trailer opens outside of the Capitol, with President Snow (Donald Sutherland) discussing how he's been watching over Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), as we see her walk through a snow-filled garden with one white rose as a plane flies over the Capitol. For the first time in Panem history, the districts of Panem have been united »
Lionsgate’s franchise finale The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 hit Hall H today in the films’ final appearance at Comic-Con, where the Suzanne Collins books-turned-tentpole blockbusters have been preaching to the choir since the beginning. Among the first things on the docket was the showing of a stirring propaganda short featuring choreographed soldiers in formation around a red-clad Jennifer Lawrence, kicked off by the entrance of two rows of live drummers into Hall… »
Lionsgate took over Hall H today with a presentation showcasing The Last Witch Hunter and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, and now the studio has brightened the days of even those not in attendance at the San Diego convention by dropping a thrilling new trailer for the dystopian franchise finale.
Now, the tease doesn’t include any footage from the actual movie, unless director Francis Lawrence is heavily diverging from the source material by Suzanne Collins and re-imagining the fight for Panem as an epic community dance-off, but it’s still a badass continuation of the Katniss as queen angle that the last poster for the series topper went for earlier today.
The Hunger Games has always had some killer poster work, but Lionsgate has really been nailing everything about the marketing campaign for Mockingjay – Part 2. It’s clear that this is going to be a monumental final chapter for the series, »

The barrage of posters and other imagery for the final entry in the Hunger Games series, Mockingjay – Part 2, continues. With a new burst just a couple of days ago, here comes a motion poster featuring Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen, and another, more standard (but no less stylish image) of her the white throne that has become a familiar icon of the final two movies’ ads. Following on from the first Mockingjay, the second part of the story finds Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) and the rebels making the final push against Donald Sutherland's scheming President Snow and the Capitol, with lives on the line and sacrifices to be made. The new movie should boost the action quotient as the bigger beats are to be found lurking towards the end of Suzanne Collins’ third tome. And the imagery continues to impress, more often than not eschewing boring floating head posters for more interesting, »
A bloody battle will soon rage, if these stunning new warpaint posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 are any indication.

There are still five months to go until The Hunger Games concludes with Mockingjay - Part 2. The latest trailer arrived a month ago, and just to keep your interest up, Lionsgate have just unleashed a new batch of posters, showcasing 'The Faces Of The Revolution'. You can bump and grind if it's good for your mind, but you won't fool them. Here's Jennifer Lawrence as the reliably revolutionary Katniss, followed by the whole lot.Following on from the first Mockingjay, the second part of the story finds Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) and the rebels making the final push against Donald Sutherland's scheming President Snow and the Capitol, with lives on the line and sacrifices to be made.

The Hunger Games film and book series have become something of a behemoth of modern popular culture. The films in particular are held in high regard, thanks to the stunning realisation of the world that Suzanne Collins wrote about in addition to the excellent performance of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen.
However, movie fans will be able to tell you that – despite Suzanne Collins protestations that the inspiration for the series came from her channel surfing between reality TV and war coverage – the story elements and main plot appear to owe more than a little to some other films and books that appeared before hers ever hit the market. There are some who will even go so far as to entirely boycott the series in protest at this apparent idea theft.
While this doesn’t take away from the achievements of the Hunger Games films, there is no denying »

Of the three "Hunger Games" books, "Mockingjay" was my favorite. This is partly due to the excellent way Suzanne Collins established the story in the first book and really hammered it home with true drama in the final moments, which is why I'm expecting a lot from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 and I'm really excited for the finale. I want to see how they handle it as well as the response from audiences that don't know what's to come. That said, along with the new picture above, Entertainment Weekly spoke with director Francis Lawrence who said, "There is some serious girl power in this movie... Suzanne Collins wrote it that way, and it's been so much fun to inhabit." "It's probably the most emotional of the bunch," Lawrence added. "And I think it's the most ?satisfying of the bunch." From a book perspective, yes, we will see »

With exactly one week until The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 invades Comic-Con 2015, Entertainment Weekly has debuted two new photos from The Hunger Games franchise finale, set for release on November 20. Both images feature Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen reuniting with fashion guru Effie Trinket, played by Elizabeth Banks. The actresses represent just a few of the numerous female stars in the movie, including, Julianne Moore, Natalie Dormer, Stef Dawson and Gwendoline Christie, with director Francis Lawrence revealing that all of the females shine in this finale.
"There is some serious girl power in this movie. She (Suzanne Collins) wrote it that way, and it's been so much fun to inhabit."
The director also teased that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 will be quite the tearjerker.
"It's probably the most emotional of the bunch. And I think it's the most ­satisfying of the bunch."

Director Francis Lawrence has also spoken of the empowering nature of the film series, which he says is down to Suzanne Collins' source novels: "There is some serious girl power in this movie. She wrote it that way, and it's been so much fun to inhabit."
He added that we can expect more violence as the Rebellion truly takes hold, with multiple casualties expected: "It's probably the most emotional of the bunch. And I »
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens also on the calendar and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice hogging the media spotlight, it’s been shockingly easy to forget that another major franchise event is headed our way this year in the final Hunger Games installment. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 will bring the tale of Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen to a fiery conclusion as she takes the fight for Panem’s future to the dastardly President Snow (Donald Sutherland).
Amid all the explosions, however, the finale also heightens the emotional stakes, and a new photo from the pic (premiered by EW) highlights a strengthening bond between Katniss and Elizabeth Banks’ Effie Trinket.
“There is some serious girl power in this movie,” director Francis Lawrence (no relation to his star) told EW, crediting book author Suzanne Collins. “She wrote it that way, and it’s been so much fun to inhabit. »

A new photo from "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2" reveals that there's plenty of girl power to go around in the final installment in the massively popular Ya franchise.
Entertainment Weekly shared the snap, which features Effie (Elizabeth Banks) appearing to help Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) prep for battle -- and sport a killer outfit, naturally. Banks's bubbly stylist and Lawrence's feisty heroine are just two of several key female characters who make "Mockingjay" tick, and as director Francis Lawrence explained to EW, that's entirely by design.
"There is some serious girl power in this movie," Lawrence told the magazine, adding that "Hunger Games" author Suzanne Collins's work was the backbone for establishing that tone. "She wrote it that way, and it's been so much fun to inhabit," Lawrence said.
Check out the photo of Effie and Katniss below, and be on the lookout for new characters played by »
