The Hunger Games Movie News

Two-Part 'Hunger Games' Finale 'Mockingjay' Gets Release Dates

Taking a page out of The Twilight Saga playbook (which actually took a page out of the Harry Potter playbook), Lionsgate today announced plans to break the film adaptation of the third The Hunger Games book, Mockingjay, into two movies.  In doing so, Lionsgate ensures that it will have Hunger Games sequels in theaters through 2015. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 will open worldwide Nov. 21, 2014 (or one year after Catching Fire). The series finale will reach theaters on Nov. 20, 2015.

Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) now owns all of your Thanksgivings.

It wasn’t specified in the Deadline story whether Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence will stay on to helm the two-part Mockingjay, or if – like Twilight – a new visionary will be tapped to conclude the series (as Bill Condon is doing with Breaking Dawn). It’s all but certain that Catching Fire, which opens on Nov. 22, 2013, will perform well at the box office. And so long as fans don’t mind, Lionsgate just doubled the profit it expected to bring in on Mockingjay had that chapter in the literary trilogy been contained to one film.  

What do you think, Hunger Games fans? Are you upset that you have to wait until 2015 for the film franchise’s conclusion? Does it bother you that, as with Potter and Twilight, you have to fork over twice as much to see one book adapted? Or are you happy to know that you’ll have Hunger Games movies to look forward to from now through 2015? And where should they break the first Mockingjay off, teasing a solid second half that will get fans back in theaters for the stunning conclusion? Let us know. We’d love to hear your thoughts.
