Lionsgate makes several exciting Mockingjay Part 2 announcements: a new, emotional Katniss/Prim featurette; kick-off dates for the Mockingjay Part 2 World Tour; plus, fans can go to advanced screenings of Mockingjay Part 2 during The Hunger Games Double Feature.
Like my fellow Tributes, one of my favorite parts of The Hunger Games series is the relationship between Katniss and Prim. I don’t think it’s too far-fetched to say that it’s Katniss’ love for her younger sister that eventually leads to her become the iconic Mockingjay.
In honor of our love for the two sisters, Lionsgate has released a new trailer that’s all about Katniss and Prim. It debuted on Good Morning America earlier today. “For Prim” is essentially a montage of moments between the two, beginning with Katniss comforting Prim before her very first Hunger Games, moving us through the remainder of the films, ultimately ending with an emotional exchange in Mockingjay Part 2. In the background “My Tears are Becoming a Sea” by M83 serenades us right into tears. Check it out below:
*WEEPING* I watch this and then I think of the end of Mockingjay (the book) and I get even more verklempt! How are you holding up?

Mockingjay Part 2 will start playing in theaters at 7:00pm on Thursday, November 19, but even more exciting, starting on Wednesday, November 18, fans will have the option to screen a double feature of Mockingjay Part 1 + Part 2.

With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale, Finnick, and Peeta – 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. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.
