….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.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WELCOME TO THE 76TH HUNGER GAMES.
This time we’re playing for all the marbles.
Note that once again, the trailer is playing up the relationship between Katniss and her sister, the same way it did in the poster. Also, I love the wedding fake out–it’s not Katniss, it’s Finnick and Annie.
But the real kicker (to me) is how much these fights in the Capitol feel so reminiscent of the fights in the arena from the first two movies. Partly it’s the stylized nature of the architecture, but it’s also the way the Capitol fights back, with unstable ground and the waves of black roiling through the city. It’s the 76th Hunger Games all right–the difference is this time, everyone’s lives are at stake.
Say what you want about the books or the movies, but you have to really hand it to New Line, the marketing for these movies has been on point at every step.
Below, the full poster, with the call to arms.

That of sisterhood.
This poster for The Hunger Games series was released as part of the Cannes Film Festival yesterday.
The Hunger Games franchise–one of the few we can say that actually has gotten better with each installment–is coming to an end.
That sad feeling is why Lionsgate is scrambling to figure out how and if they can make more movies from the popular series. But until they do (and probably ruin it) let us get all the feels from the first teaser for the final movie.
