With The Hunger Games slated to come out in only a few days, Vulture has crafted a video in which they imagine what the dystopian future would have looked like 20 years ago, before the CGI revolution.
Some of it looks exactly the same, just with a less crisp and polished video quality. Some of it… well…
Some of it is merely missing Arnold Schwarzenegger. And is that John Williams scoring it? I believe it is. Along with suits straight outta Tron.
I mean, Katniss is usually pretty cranky about how things are going in these movies. But still. I suppose it’s good to know not much has changed.
“Star Squad” eh? I suppose there are worse things.
With the final poster released, it’s time for the six-week promotional push for the final installment of The Hunger Games to roll into high gear, with a mid November release date.
The opening salvo is a spread in Entertainment Weekly, with a cover featuring Katniss is her red Mockingjay suits, and a slate of pictures from the new movie which follow.
This is also where, if the movies choose to go there, the Team Peeta vs Team Gale part of the plot will kick into high gear. Though, to be honest, the way they’ve semi backburnered that throughout the movie franchise in favor of Katniss having way more important priorities,, I’m kind of hoping they keep it that way.

The new trailer honors that choice.

….I can’t breathe. My heart… my heart.
I think it’s wonderful how they’re keeping everything trained on Snow, so those who don’t know the twist that’s to come will be surprised. Also the way the movies are tying back the earlier Games to the final battle is really sharp. Once again, i think the chances of this being better than the book (and better than the three that came before it) is high.
If so, this will mark the first one of these trilogies (quadrilogies?) where that was the case.
In case you don’t realize it, this is the same throne President Snow sat in for Mockingjay Part 1.
Below, a message from District 13. (Updated with full trailer!)
