The third and second to last movie in “The Hunger Games” series, “Mockingjay Part 1”, is set to hit theaters Nov. 21. Ever since the movie “The Hunger Games” came out in Mar. of 2012, fans have been itching to see a full on rebellion.
This fall, their hunger for said rebellion will be sated. The final book in the trilogy has been split into two movies. Part 2 is set to be released in 2015. Senior Bradley Nissen said, “I don’t like how they split it into two movies, but we’ll see how they do.”
After the previous movie in the series “Catching Fire” was released, readers of the books were amazed at how closely the movie followed the text. With this in mind, moviegoers can be assured that they will not leave the theater disappointed. They will, however, be craving more.
As the final book is split into two parts, the end of “Mockingjay Part 1” is sure to be a major cliffhanger. “Lord of the Rings” fans can attest to the anguish felt after a horrible cliff hanger such as the one at the end of the “Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” Whatever the ending to “Mockingjay Part 1”, it is sure to be a great movie; a two act play released a year apart.
