It’s been almost a year since the first part of the Mockingjay movie from the Hunger Games series was released. The hype from the first part of the movie has died down considerably, and the thought that a second movie is still on its way may have slipped from the minds of many people. But if anyone forgot that Mockingjay has only been partially released, they are definitely starting to remember now. In a survey conducted by Variety, the latest Hunger Games sequel topped the list of most anticipated movies of the fall, with 36 percent of the vote.
In fact, the last movie to receive this level of anticipation was the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 back in 2011. The film brought in close to $1.3 billion dollars, however, according to the Venture Capital Post, the final Hunger Games instalment is expected to bring in close to $3 billion dollars in revenue. In addition to the fact that this is the final movie from Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy, the new Mockingjay movie will also feature the final scenes of Phillip Seymour Hoffman before he died.
Another reason that the Hunger Games trilogy has been so well received is because of the all-star cast. The movie will feature the same big names like Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Stanley Tucci, and, of course, Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss, the leading character in the Hunger Games trilogy. Lawrence, thanks to the Hunger Games series, is now the highest paid female actor in Hollywood. It’s no doubt that a large portion of the Hunger Games fans are first and foremost Jennifer Lawrence fans.
There’s definitely a lot to look forward to from Jennifer Lawrence, and the Hunger Games trilogy will certainly not be the end of fame for this actress. The last movie will be released in theaters on November 20, 2015, in North America.
