The new, and probably last, trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is so good, you could close your eyes and it would still give you goosebumps.

Jennifer Lawrence stars in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, which open November 20. Finally, after three movies of death, betrayal and intrigue Katniss will lead the people of Panem against the Capitol and the evil President Snow (Donald Sutherland). But what Snow has in store for them is a level of resistance that far surpasses what our heroes have faced in the actual Hunger Games. In Mockingjay Part 2, everyone takes part in the Games.

Because The Hunger Games movies have made a ton of money, sometimes they get written off as basic young adult crap. Which is unfortunate because they are certainly not defined by any one thing. Yes, there’s a bit of that innocence to them but more than that, they’re solid films with interesting themes about politics, the media, bigotry and a ton of other social issues. There’s even an argument to be made that each film has been better than the last. With this final film though, I expect some of those themes will be pushed to the background for an epic action adventure. That’s what this trailer suggest anyway.

If nothing else, Gwendoline Christie should be more than enough to get you in the theater for this one.
