After a whole handful of character posters and a vibrant Katniss sitting in Snow's throne (see the one-sheet here), the first, full-length trailer for the forthcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is here and it's epic!

During the Lionsgate panel at this year's San Diego Comic-con (read my panel report here), after lots of teasing and marketing (see above), actors Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Willow Shields, along with director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson debuted the first, full-length trailer for the film and now it is now online in all its glory... "Turn your weapons to the Capitol. Turn your weapons to Snow." Spoiler alert, it's good.

I have to say, I'm absolutely loving this reveal. I'm a huge fan of The Hunger Games franchise and, from what we can see in the trailer, Mockingjay Part 2 looks like a great conclusion to the series but it looks like it respects and honours Suzanne Collins' novel too. The finale looks action-packed, emotionally charged and just much bigger in scope than any of the previous instalments and even the book, for that matter. There's a lot of battle footage with Katniss leading the charge. It looks epic and I'm even more excited than ever now to see the film when it releases later this year.

Here's the film's official synopsis:
With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.
Francis Lawrence returns to the helm for what is sure to be one of the biggest films of the year. Jennifer LawrenceLiam HemsworthJosh HutchersonDonald SutherlandNatalie Dormer and Julianne Moore are amongst the many actors set to star in the film. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 opens on November 20th, 2015.
