Taking a step back from the high octane feel that we’ve seen so far in the Mockingjay Part 2 teasers, this latest trailer, poignantly titled ‘For Prim’, bears this large sense of foreboding and dares you not to have a tear in your eye.
The epic conclusion to the hugely successful Hunger Games franchise, staring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, looks set to be every bit as action packed as its predecessors, and sees Katniss realise the stakes are no longer just for survival – they’re for the future.
Here we get a look at one of the more underplayed aspects of the books. This was all for Prim. Back when Katniss volunteered, who ever thought it would lead to this? (I say this in a rhetorical sense, because there wouldn’t have been much of a series if it was a conventional Hunger Games and everything was hunky-dory afterwards).
This latest video is more a memory than an actual trailer and there’s something beautiful in the revolving image of Katniss in her revolutionary Mockingjay outfit. Overlapped with scenes from all the films and accompanied by M83’s beautiful song ‘My Tears Are Becoming A Sea’, the focus is very much on her relationship with her sister. Bringing a more humane side to things, it makes you remember all the sacrifices that have been, and will be, made in the name of the rebellion.
Whether you like this trailer or not, you can’t help but be excited for what’s to come this November.
