For some reason, audiences seem OK with paying full price to see fractions of a story these days—nobody threw a fit when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was spliced into two movies, and for some reason people are still paying to see The Hobbit chopped into a trilogy of films so it takes about the same amount of time to watch the story as it does to actually sit down and read the original book cover to cover. The people behind the Hunger Games movie adaptations want to milk you for all your money, too, so they've decided to cut the final book, Mockingjay, into two films as well.
The first trailer for Mockingjay Part 2 was just released today, and it is chock-full of dystopian warfare and close-ups of a disheveled-yet-wise Woody Harrelson. The movie picks up in the middle of the Districts's rebellion against the Capitol, with Jennifer Lawrence as its de facto leader. Though the kids of Panem aren't duking it out in an artificial arena anymore, the game—as Donald Sutherland says in the trailer—"isn't over." Watch it above.
