The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is a 2015 American epic dystopian science fiction war film directed by Francis Lawrence, with a screenplay by Peter Craig and Danny Strong. It is the fourth and final installment in The Hunger Games film series, and the second of two films based on the novel Mockingjay, the final book in The Hunger Games trilogy, by Suzanne Collins. Produced by Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik, and distributed by Lionsgate, the film features an ensemble cast that includes Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Philip Seymour Hoffman (in his final film role), and Donald Sutherland. The first part of the Mockingjay adaptation, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, was released on November 21, 2014.
The story continues with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), as she prepares to win the war against President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and the tyrannical Capitol. Together with Peeta, Gale, Finnick, and others, she travels to Capitol to kill Snow. However, President Coin, the leader of District 13 and the rebellion, hides a bigger agenda that could not only jeopardize Katniss’ life, but the future of Panem.
Principal photography on both parts of the film began on September 23, 2013 in Atlanta, before moving to Paris for two weeks of back-to-back filming and officially concluding on June 20, 2014, in Berlin and at Babelsberg Studios, Germany. The film was released on November 20, 2015 in the United States, in 2D and IMAX, and internationally in 2D, 3D, RealD Cinema, and IMAX 3D in select territories. It is the only film in the series widely released in 3D. Mockingjay – Part 2 was positively received by critics being praised for its acting—particularly that of Lawrence, Hoffman, Hutcherson, Claflin and Malone—writing and script, cinematography and the action scenes. However it was criticised for splitting the final adaptation into two parts. As of 5 December 2015 Mockingjay – Part 2 has grossed over $452. 2 million worldwide.
