Fates are shifting in the new second UK Trailer for The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes. When fates of some of the upcoming blockbusters get delayed, Lionsgate Films still plug away with The Hunger Games Prequel for a November release.
The trailer teases the actual games is only the beginning, they’re to punish the districts. The film is based on Suzanne Collins The Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes, 64 years prior the events of The Hunger Games movies. We follow a young Coriolanus Snow (Tom Blyth), his families last hope in post war Panem and becomes a mentor for the 10th Hunger Games. He is paired to mentor Lucy Gray Baird (Rachel Zegler) of District 12, working together to turn the odds in their favour.
Fans of the franchise will know Lucy and Katniss may look similar, they are not. Director Francis Lawrence stated that Katniss priority was more survival, Lucy is playing the game and knows what she is doing. What ever this actually looks pretty good…
THE HUNGER GAMES: THE BALLAD OF SONGBIRDS & SNAKES follows a young Coriolanus (Tom Blyth) who is the last hope for his failing lineage, the once-proud Snow family that has fallen from grace in a post-war Capitol. With his livelihood threatened, Snow is reluctantly assigned to mentor Lucy Gray Baird (Rachel Zegler), a tribute from the impoverished District 12. But after Lucy Gray’s charm captivates the audience of Panem, Snow sees an opportunity to shift their fates. With everything he has worked for hanging in the balance, Snow unites with Lucy Gray to turn the odds in their favour. Battling his instincts for both good and evil, Snow sets out on a race against time to survive and reveal if he will ultimately become a songbird or a snake.
The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes will arrive in UK and Irish cinemas from 17th November.
