With The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 set to hit DVD, Digital & Blu-Ray early next month, it won't be long until marketing kicks off on its followup - The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 - and, in fact, we may have a teaser trailer premiere date already.

Last year, the teaser for the penultimate chapter in the franchise arrived in July, in the Samsung Galaxy Hall of Heroes, at San Diego Comic-con. It was a clever approach and gave Lionsgate something to boast there. However, it seems as though history won't be repeating itself as we may have already seen the teaser trailer long before then, this time round.

What am I spraffing on about, you may ask? Well, according to a variety of reports and discussions, it seems to be that we'll be seeing the teaser trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 in April (April 24th, 2015 to be exact), alongside another one of the studio's forthcoming films: The Age of Adaline. This is all, of course, if The Projection List's schedule of upcoming trailers is to be believed. However, they have been right with their schedules on a number of occasions in the past.

It makes sense too as the studio are known for attaching trailers and reveals to their lower-key projects so having the Mockingjay Part 2 teaser with Age of Adaline could certainly bring a lot of attention and viewers into the Harrison Ford and Blake Lively starring film. However, take it with a pinch of salt. Whilst this is most likely what is going to be happening, it's just a projected date and Lionsgate are yet to 'officially' confirm anything. It does fit their marketing trend though but being a high profile film can mean that the studio get a variety of opportunities to do all sorts of things with the reveal.

Being the final film would also give reason for one last, strong promotional campaign so starting it earlier than usual (i.e. in April) is a very plausible idea and one that I'm sure will pay off. We'll just have to wait and see though. Nonetheless, we can at least expect a teaser poster of sorts to arrive shortly, if nothing else. I'm a huge fan of The Hunger Games and absolutely adored the last instalment, giving it a glowing review. I can't wait until Mockingjay Part 2 releases and until we get our first look at it, whenever it may be. I'd still pencil in April 24th, though. I have a good feeling about it.

Francis Lawrence returns to the helm for what is sure to be one of the biggest films of the year. Jennifer LawrenceLiam HemsworthJosh HutchersonDonald SutherlandWoody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks are amongst those returning for one final fight as the rebellion comes to its end. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is opening on 20th November, 2015.
