AFTER tortuous social media teasing from lead stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, the awesome first trailer for the final Hunger Games movie Mockingjay Part 2 has dropped online.

Katniss, played by Lawrence, will continue her epic battle to defeat the Capitol "so we may all be free" as the much-loved franchise reaches its dramatic conclusion.

Francis Lawrence is back in the director's chair with Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks and Julianne Moore also among the star-studded cast.

Mockingjay Part 2 will see Katniss and Distract 13 engage in "all-out revolution" against the oppressive President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Peeta, Gale and Finnick will all be at her side as Katniss risks everything to bring victory to Panem and ensure it's future while Snow is hellbent on killing her.

"Nothing good is safe while Snow's alive and I can't make another speech about it" Katniss decides, a look of steely determination on her face. "Snow has to pay for what he's done."

A cryptic poster revealing that "the Mockingjay will be heard" was sent to news outlets yesterday along with today's date "6.9.15", prompting rumours that the teaser would be arriving.

The cast and crew also joined in with the fun, posting some mysterious tweets.

Mockingjay Part 1 proved a box office smash last November, grossing more than $725 million worldwide. Part 2 will follow on 20 November later this year.

It remains to be seen whether there will be any spin-off Hunger Games films, after Lawrence said last year that he is "definitely open to talking about it" with Lionsgate.

"I think everybody's thinking about it," he said. "Everybody loves the world and the ideas."
