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 shattered 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.
Directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Danny Strong and Peter Craig, the novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the US alone.
Try to ignore the latest cynical splitting of the final book in the series (cash in, anyone?) and prepare for the beginning of the end of a science fiction movie series that’s actually pretty good.
Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth
