I’ve never been a die-hard fan of the Hunger Games franchise, but I do recognize that Catching Fire was a lot better than the first movie. Now the series is going to start wrapping up with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, and while this looks like a fine movie, I really wish they hadn’t divided it into two parts. That division feels like nothing more than a moneygrab to me, as I can’t really imagine this war being worthy of more than two hours of screen time.
On another note, it’s just a little bit haunting to see the late Philip Seymour Hoffman in this trailer.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 comes out November 21, 2014. Here’s a trailer mashup, just for kicks.
