With books geared towards strong, empowered female characters on the rise, it's no wonder their cinematic counterparts are being drawn out longer than before. Both the Divergent and The Hunger Games trilogies are receiving the split final movie, leaving more room for relevant plot devices (and some fan-inspired twists) to make it onto the big screen.
Mockingjay, Part 2 is soon to be released, and will mark the end of The Hunger Games' movie run. We will have watched Katniss go from volunteering as a tribute in the gladiatorial Games to rising up as leader of a rebellion against the Capitol. It will be a touching moment for all of us who have laughed, cried, and loved first with book!Katniss and now with JLaw!Katniss.
Here are our Pop5 reasons why you should marathon Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson in The Hunger Games before the release of Mockingjay, Part 2.
Katniss is a compassionate person! She cares about her family, friends, and community!
2. All of her AWESOME costumes!
3. Besides Jennifer Lawrence, there are a lot of very attractive people in these movies, let's be real.
4. Watching her grow as the Mockingjay makes us all feel very secretive and awesome (don't lie!)
5. Despite the fact we hate Snow, having another villain would seem very cheap.
So clear your schedules, pop some popcorn, and let the Games begin––again!
The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay, Part 1 are available now on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital Download through Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
Mockingjay, Part 2 is set to fly into theaters November 20, 2015.
