‘Mockingjay – Part 2’ trailer: Why make two movies from one book?.

The last installment of “The Hunger Games” franchise is nearly upon us. ‘s character’s little sister Primerose Everdeen, or Prim, gets a touching tribute in a new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 trailer, which was released on Wednesday.Lionsgate has a somewhat impossible task, the same one most movie studios face in 2015 — continuously repurposing old scenes to create exciting, visually stunning and gripping new trailers. Accompanied by the song “My Tears are Becoming A Sea” by M83, the video contains a montage of moving scenes between Katniss Everdeen and her sis, played by , 15. The new trailer focuses mainly on the relationship between protagonist Katniss Everdeen (played by Lawrence) and her younger sister, Prim (Willow Shields).

The clip barely introduces new footage, but it does beautifully refocus the franchise’s story on its core relationship: the one between Katniss and her sister, Prim. In the almost two-and-a-half minute trailer, we are reminded of Katniss’s protective nature (she volunteered as Tribute!) and Prim’s journey from innocent bystander to Katniss’s confidant.

The “Harry Potter” movie series popularized the idea of dividing the last book in a series into two films with its installments “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.” Other young adult franchises such as “Twilight” and “Games” followed suit with “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” and “2” and the “Mockingjay” movies. In fact, one of the book’s drawbacks — for this reader anyway — was that it had been so long since Prim had been part of the story that by the time Katniss locks eyes with her little sis just as the lethal bomb is exploding, Prim’s death feels strangely anticlimactic.

Especially with the “Breaking Dawn” and “Mockingjay” movies, some critics seemed to feel the first movie was simply killing time until the second arrived.
