THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 1
Release date: November 21
Director: Francis Lawrence
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson
When last we left our heroine Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) in Catching Fire, she had joined forces with former Hunger Games victors to escape the annual events’ all-star season, entitled the Quarter Quell. Katniss now finds herself embedded in an underground complex beneath the ruins of District 13 as her defiance of The Capitol fuels a revolution across Panem. Joined by a new leader, rebellion President Alma Coin (Julianne Moore), and a band of capable warriors, Katniss sets out to overthrow the country’s corrupt government and rescue her friend and co-victor Peeta Mellark (Hutcherson), who has been captured and brainwashed by the evil President Snow (Donald Sutherland).
