First trailer for 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2' is here

This is it, the first trailer for the final 'Hunger Games' movie

The first trailer for the final installation in the "Hunger Games" movie franchise is out. So ready your Katniss Everdeen braids, the "Hunger Games" are almost over.

Adapted from the YA book series by author Suzanne Collins, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2" will be the fourth and final movie in this massive franchise. The third book was actually split into two separate films, and "Part 2" is the conclusion. And what a conclusion it's setting up; so much is going on in this footage, including a ton of spoilers for the grand finale. 

The trailer appears to pick up right where the last film left off. The underground citizens of the mysterious District 13 continue their quest to take back the land of Panem from the totalitarian rule of President Snow (Donald Sutherland). 

From the copious speeches and new can-do attitude, it looks like Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is a lot more comfortable in her role as the face of the revolution. Meanwhile, characters Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) and Annie Cresta (Stef Dawson) found a bit of happiness; the trailer shows them getting married. One third of the Katniss love triangle, Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) is looking a lot better than he did in "Part 1." But perhaps the most interesting note is the final moment where the team of revolutionaries (lead by Katniss) is attacked by some sort of trash avalanche.

No doubt this is a snippet from the massive finale where the Capitol throws all manner of road blocks at the young heroes, including incomprehensible waves of garbage. Looks like somehow director Francis Lawrence managed to make a few fantastical parts of the book a reality. "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2" hits theaters on Nov. 20.
