Mockingjay Part 2 is still pushing, and the film has now released its final trailer, and we finally get a clip that details something outside the scope of the trailers. There’s also a special IMAX poster, because why would you not?
The trailer, an especially long one, gives quite the rundown of events, as if you needed them, and the clip finally gives us a look at a scene that doesn’t exist in the trailer. It also lays some solid groundwork for the struggle Katniss needs to go through, if the ending is going to manage any power.
The first half of Mockingjay didn’t really give us much that is going to propel us toward the ending, with a great deal of focus being on survival and war, and very little on Coin.
Take a look below, and make sure to get your tickets now.
Mockingjay Part 2 Final »

Just one day after the new trailer debuted for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, Lionsgate has debuted a stylish new IMAX poster, featuring Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and the tagline "Nothing Can Prepare You For The End." Wired debuted this one-sheet, which features plenty of intriguing symbolism, such as the drops of blood shown on the white roses. President Snow (Donald Sutherland) has always used white roses as a symbolic gesture, leaving them as veiled threats towards Katniss, but this poster also serves as an "in-world" piece of propaganda for Katniss and the growing rebellion.
It's also intriguing that Katniss' eye, the same one she uses to aim her bow and arrow, is obscured by one of these white roses, but we can see blood running down her face, just below the rose. Below Katniss we see the iconic Mockingjay symbol, with a slew of Peacekeepers surrounding the wings, »
Watch the final trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, in theaters November 20.
The blockbuster Hunger Games franchise has taken audiences by storm around the world, grossing more than $2.2 billion at the global box office. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 now brings the franchise to its powerful final chapter in which Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) 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 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 on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her.

Following the first clip that debuted last week, Lionsgate has released the fourth trailer for their highly-anticipated The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, arriving in theaters November 20. It's only been three and a half years since this franchise started with 2012's The Hunger Games, but it has already become a box office juggernaut, with the first three films earning over $2.3 billion worldwide. In just under two months, the story of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and her rebellion against Panem will come to an end, in an explosive fashion.
With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown.

For hardcore fans, no running time would have been long enough for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2.
Luckily for us, it looks like the concluding chapter of the hugely successful franchise will at least be the longest film of the series.
According to a press release about the film's UK premiere on November 5, Mockingjay - Part 2 will be 147 minutes long - one minute longer than Catching Fire.
When added to Mockingjay - Part 1's relatively svelte running time of 123 minutes, that means Suzanne Collins's final book has been transformed into an epic four-and-a-half hours of film.
The premiere at London's Odeon Leicester Square is set to be attended by the film's stars Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Sam Claflin, Natalie Dormer, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.
Last month, a report surfaced claiming John Wick co-director David Leitch had backed out of co-directing the sequel John Wick 2, with Chad Stahelski going solo. The Wrap reports that David Leitch has come aboard to direct The Coldest City starring Charlize Theron. We first reported on The Coldest City back in May, when both David Leitch and Chad Stahelski were set to direct, but now David Leitch will take the helm by himself.
The project is based on Anthony Johnston's Oni Press graphic novel of the same name, which follows a highly-trained spy (Charlize Theron) who investigates the murder of an MI6 agent, who is killed just before the collapse of the Berlin Wall. She is trying to find the list he was attempting to smuggle into the West, to protect herself and the rest of the intelligence community, which turns into a deadly game between numerous double-crossing agents. »
Following the final poster that star Jennifer Lawrence shared yesterday, Lionsgate has released the first clip from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, in theaters November 20. If that wasn't enough, Entertainment Weekly has released the cover for this week's print issue, which features Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, Liam Hemsworth as Gale and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, along with eight new photos. The clip gives us a tiny taste of life in District 13, although it does bring some unexpected changes for Katniss.
The clip shows Katniss reuniting with Finnick (Sam Claflin), before they are joined by their new commanding officer, Boggs (Mahershala Ali), who has special orders for Katniss, Gale and Finnick. Cressida (Natalie Dormer) reveals that they will all be the "on-screen faces" of this war against The Capitol, since it has been decided that they are more effective when seen by the masses. This scene also gives us a new look at Lt. »

Back in May, Lionsgate confirmed that they are moving forward with John Wick 2, with original John Wick directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch confirmed to return, Derek Kolstad coming back to write the script and Keanu Reeves reprising the title character. While both Chad Stahelski and David Leitch directed John Wick, David Leitch went uncredited. After the success of the original movie, the filmmakers have been attached and/or rumored for a number of different projects. Today we have a new report from Collider, who have confirmed from Lionsgate that Chad Stahelski will direct the sequel on his own, with David Leitch serving as an executive producer and circling other projects to direct by himself.
This report comes just two days after production company Thunder Road confirmed that production on John Wick 2 begins sometime this fall, although a release date hasn't been handed out for the sequel quite yet. »
20th Century Fox released their new action/sci-fi movie, "Maze Runner 2: The Scorch Trials," into theaters today, September 18th, 2015, and all the reviews are in from the top, major movie critics. It turns out that it sort of fell in the middle with mixed reviews giving it an overall 43 score out of a possible 100 across 28 reviews at the Metacritic.com site. The film stars: Starring: Aidan Gillen, Dylan O'Brien, Giancarlo Esposito, Kaya Scodelario and Thomas Brodie-Sangster. We've provided blurbs from a few of the critics, below. Brian Truitt at USA Today, gave it an ok 75 grade, stating: "Katniss and Tris might still be queen bees of the genre, but Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers find a satisfying, teen-friendly way to combine rebellion, politics, science and a lot of jogging for a broad audience." Michael Sragow from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 70 score, saying: »
Jennifer Lawrence's character's little sister Primerose Everdeen, or Prim, gets a touching tribute in a new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 trailer, which was released on Wednesday. Accompanied by the song "My Tears are Becoming A Sea" by M83, the video contains a montage of moving scenes between Katniss Everdeen and her sis, played by Willow Shields, 15. Both work to save the innocent during a rebellion against the Capitol. The clips are taken from the previous films: The Hunger Games, The Hunger Games — Catching Fire and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, and include memorable, heartbreaking moments, such as when »
The finale to The Hunger Games is coming, and no stone is going to be left unturned when it comes to the perhaps needless marketing efforts. The latest installment gives a touching rundown of Prim, who, let’s face it, might not get as much attention as she deserves.
The film naturally has a lot of other efforts going on, including a couple of treats for those who might want their tickets early, or catch Part 1 and Part 2 together.

Production got under way last month on Disney and LucasFilm's first Star Wars spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which takes place between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. We've already seen the first set photos, which reveal a few actors playing Stormtroopers. Today, TMZ uncovered more photos that show some sort of massive spaceship crash, along with several dead Stormtroopers floating in shallow water. What could this all mean? We don't have a single clue, but we can spot a few of the main cast members in these images, including Felicity Jones.
The story will center on a group of Rebel Alliance soldiers who go on a mission to steal the Empire's plans for the original Death Star. Felicity Jones leads the cast that also includes Riz Ahmed, Sam Claflin, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn and Forest Whitaker. »
After Lionsgate's lucrative Hunger Games franchise ends this fall with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, actress Jennifer Lawrence may re-unite with director Francis Lawrence on a new project for 20th Century Fox, entitled Red Sparrow. Francis Lawrence became attached to direct earlier this summer, but now Deadline reports that Jennifer Lawrence is now being eyed to star. There was talk that Jennifer Lawrence was being eyed earlier this summer, when Francis Lawrence came aboard, but she might not be officially attached for some time.
Justin Haythe (Snitch, The Lone Ranger) has come aboard to rewrite the adapted script, which was originally written by Eric Warren Singer (American Hustle, The International). based on the novel by Jason Matthews. The story is set in modern-day Russia, following Dominika Egorova, a spy forced into becoming a "sparrow," who is trained to seduce rival agents. Her first assignment is a CIA operative tasked with handling Russian intelligence, »

We haven’t yet read Jason Matthews’ novel “Red Sparrow,” published in 2013, but we should probably get around to it, given that some of the biggest movie talent around have spent the last few years sniffing around it. First, Darren Aronofsky was attached to the project, then David Fincher became involved with his regular collaborator Rooney Mara. Read More: Francis Lawrence Says The Final ‘Hunger Games’ Is The Most Emotional, Plus New Photos Of The Last Chapter Those two fell off in favor of the now-cancelled “Utopia,” but “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and “Mockingjay” director Francis Lawrence came on earlier in the year, and now Deadline have confirmed what’s been whispered about for a while: he’ll likely be reteaming with his Katniss Everdeen, Hollywood’s brightest star, Jennifer Lawrence, on the project. The book sees a state intelligence officer in modern-day Russia, the role that Lawrence would play, »

A spectacular, heart-stopping adventure that has you catching your breath and gasping in shock. See it in IMAX 3D for an enrapturing you-are-there feeling. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
This is the kind of movie movies were invented for: big, visceral, and intense, a heart-stopping adventure that has you catching your breath and gasping in shock as it takes you places most of us will never get to so as to engage in the sort of life-threatening thrills that, paradoxically, remind us that we are alive. That’s an argument that safety-minded homebodies like me scoff at when risk-takers make it, but Everest makes you understand it deep in your gut.
And this is true even though Everest is the story of what had been the deadliest climbing season on the mountain until the 2014 and 2015 avalanches. »

This week, many were surprised when Netflix let its licensing deal with Epix expire, and saw many blockbuster titles like “Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “World War Z” and “Transformers: Age of Extinction” disappear from the service. However, there is a larger gameplan for the streaming service. “While many of these movies are popular, they are also widely available on cable and other subscription platforms at the same time as they are on Netflix,” said the streaming giant's honcho Ted Sarandos. “Through our original films and some innovative licensing arrangements with the movie studios, we are aiming to build a better movie experience for you.” Indeed, for streaming services, the mere fact of carrying content that many other outlets have isn't enough to stay competitive. Keeping subscribers in the long term will mean creating original programming that makes Netflix (or Amazon or Hulu) a must-have service in a time when consumers »

There’s already more stuff to watch on Netflix than you’ll be able to get through in a lifetime, but even so this news is bound to come as a disappointment to subscribers.
