These last couple of days have been YA madness. Not only did we get the first trailer for the forthcoming The 5th Wave but a teaser trailer for also revealed for The Divergent Series: Allegiant and, now, a new trailer and poster for the finale to The Hunger Games franchise, Mockingjay Part 2, have arrived.

During this past week, the locations and dates for the film premieres have been unveiled - by the cast and crew themselves. The Mockingjay Part 2 world premiere will be taking place in Berlin on November 4th, then heading to London the following day for the U.K premiere, before hitting Paris on November 9th and concluding in Los Angeles on November 16th - before its general release the following week. However, if that still seems like a long time away, you'll be glad to know that it has also been revealed that tickets for the adaptation will go on sale in just over a couple of weeks time, on October 1st, 2015.

This evening, Lionsgate have unveiled a new trailer for the film and, for all the die hard fans out there, it's going to tug on the heartstrings. The Hunger Games franchise may be about many things - rebellion, romance, hope etc - but, at its heart, it's about the love between two sisters; that's how it started out. Over the course of the last three films, we may have departed from that a little but it is still a present theme and the new trailer - titled "For Prim" - highlights the highlights of Prim and Katniss' relationship so far. It doesn't contain much new footage from Part 2 itself but it's still pretty good, nonetheless.

Accompanying the reveal, a new poster has also been debuted and it's stunning. The one-sheet features Jennifer Lawrence's titular protagonist suited up in her Mockingjay gear and standing in front of some clouds. Captioned fittingly with "A creature as unquenchable as the sun", the poster is effective and striking and just looks gorgeous. Katniss looks fierce and imposing and ready for battle and, taking into consideration the events of the last film, it'll be interesting to see her development into the full rebel, Mockingjay symbol.

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.
