Because it does not have a death wish, Lionsgate is pressing ahead with the final installment of its adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games series. Whereas Mockingjay—Part 1 was almost all setup involving disquisitions about the cost of war, the use of propaganda, and Jennifer Lawrence providing the vocals to an EDM remix of a song intended as a mournful lament, Mockingjay—Part 2 looks to deliver the action. The trailer for the fourth and last film gives us glimpses of all our returning favorites, even Peeta, who seems to have recovered from his “I went insane and tried to kill Katniss” phase. It also offers a brief look at some new characters like Commander Lyme, played by Game Of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie. The film doesn’t come out until November 20, but there’s nothing stopping you from plotting revolution right now. (About not liking what they did with Katniss’ hair, not over the profound inequality existing in the world right now, because that would be crazy.)
