The end is nigh for The Hunger Games franchise, which is coming to an end with the release of the final instalment: Mockingjay – Part Two. The blockbuster series has become one of the most lucrative in Hollywood thanks to its all-star cast, big budgets and staggering gross at the global box office.
The second part of Mockingjay will see Jennifer Lawrence reprise her role as Katniss Everdeen, the leader of the rebellion, who attempts to bring the war in Panem to an end with the help of an army. It is the last time the cast, which includes Liam Hemsworth, Julianne Moore, Josh Hutcherson and Woody Harrelson, will star together in the franchise.
Reflecting on the end of the film series, which was adapted from the novels written by Suzanne Collins, 25-year-old Lawrence told ABC News: "These movies had been my life for so long and they had to come first in everything. I was also in a relationship with somebody for five years and that was my life. So my life was this person and these movies and we broke up around the same time that I wrapped those movies."
