The promotional campaign for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is finally gearing up! A third new still was released on Thursday, this time by Liam Hemsworth.
Update (June 5): As expected, Liam Hemsworth has released a still from Mockingjay, Part 2 on his social media accounts. It depicts Gale in his fighting gear and looking tense. The first trailer arrives Tuesday, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see a couple more stills be released between now and then!
Update (June 4): It looks like we may be getting a new still from Mockingjay, Part 2 each day leading up to June 9 (more on that below). This morning Josh Hutcherson released a new still on his social media accounts which depicts Peeta in a dark place. The boy with the bread is back and in good health, it seems!
Original story (June 3): The final installment in the Hunger Games quadrilogy is just around the corner, and yet there’s still no sign of a trailer!
But surely it’s only a matter of time. Over the past few days we’ve seen a few new posters, and today, we’ve got the first official still image from the movie.
The following photo was released via Jennifer Lawrence’s Facebook page:
Katniss (Lawrence), Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Messalla (Evan Ross) and a blurry Finnick (Sam Claflin) are in full armor and equipped with their weapons of choice. It looks like they’re crouched in the ruins of the Capitol, but what has caught their attention?
The image also comes with a teasing line of text: “6.9.15 #MockingjayPart2 #Unite.” Is this the Hunger Games promo team’s way of telling us that we’re getting the trailer on June 9? Tell us your theories in the comments!
At the end of Mockingjay – Part 1, the District 13 rebels had successfully extracted Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), but it turned out it might all have been a part of President Snow (Donald Sutherland)’s plan, as Peeta immediately attacked and almost killed Katniss.
In Mockingjay – Part 2, Katniss will work with Coin (Julianne Moore) to take down the Capitol. Hopefully, she’ll find a cure for Peeta along the way… and, of course, try to survive the grueling journey ahead.
