Like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows before it, the final instalment in The Hunger Games is being split into two parts for its big screen adaptation. How that will impact the story remains to be seen, and the decision has been a little controversial with fans of the books since Lionsgate revealed their plans.
Francis Lawrence returns to direct both parts of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, and below you’ll also find new stills featuring other cast members including the late Philip Seymour-Hoffman. There’s also an interview with Moore about her role as President Coin in the movie.
The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage.
