San Diego Comic Con 2015 kicks off tonight and many of this (and next) year’s most anticipated films are presenting in the convention’s coveted Hall H. This, of course, includes The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, the final installment of The Hunger Games franchise and a film likely to be one of, if not the biggest movie of the year.
In Mockingjay – Part 1 we saw Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) slowly accept her role as the voice of a rebellion, and in Part 2 we’ll see her leading the revolution from the front lines. It’s a shift from previous films (and one that makes the split into two films feel at least a little justified), putting a stronger emphasis on fighting the enemy rather than just outlasting the enemy.
Ahead of its appearance at Comic Con, Lionsgate has been releasing new images and posters featuring Katniss and co. are going to war. Check out two more posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 – one motion (above), one not (below) that both show off Katniss’ red revolution armor.
In case you’re wondering why Jennifer Lawrence would trade a tactical black suit for this blood red number, don’t worry, this isn’t the armor Katniss will wear on the battlefield. And if she wears it on screen at all it’ll be for the purpose of more rebellion propaganda.
Still, it’s a fierce and imposing look, no doubt about that. It also hearkens back to the Catching Fire cast posters that had Katniss, Peeta and the rest of the tributes dressed the nines and posing with a fancy chair. However, those posters were rather glamorous while this has a more serious, almost sinister vibe to it.
This year will be the franchise’s last Comic Con and Hunger Games is expected to pack ’em in on Thursday. The panel is hosted by Conan O’Brien and will feature a Q&A with the cast and filmmakers as well some never-before-seen footage.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 opens in U.S. theaters on November 20th, 2015. Stay tuned to Screen Rant for more SDCC coverage throughout the week!
