The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 hits theaters November 20, and the overwhelmingly successful franchise has turned Jennifer Lawrence into one of Hollywood’s most sought after talents.

The Hunger Games franchise has been a worldwide blockbuster and to date has amassed over $2.2 billion at the box office. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, which hits theaters November 20, is the final chapter of the franchise as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and her close friends Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) attempt to finally bring down President Snow (Donald Sutherland).
“If you end all of this,” says Peeta in the recently released TV spot for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. “Our lives – they mean something.”
The Hunger Games has definitely meant something to the cast and crew has been involved with the franchise, and hopefully the latest installment will continue to feature director Francis Lawrence’s (I Am Legend, Constantine) successful blend of eye catching visuals and riveting action sequences (the final moments of I Am Legend is a particular standout).

Just like the Twilight and Harry Potter movie series, The Hunger Games finale is being split up into two parts, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 will be in theaters just four short months from now, on November 2.
As was the case with those other finales, the film is in two parts because the book it’s based on tells a much grander tale than the previous two. Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence (who plays Katniss Everdeen) told us Mockingjay will play even bigger on the big screen, and we’ll get to see much more of the capital than ever before.
