The new film in the franchise reveals itself a little more through a fairly enticing trailer.
Resurrection: after an eight-year break, Hunger Games will return to the cinema next mid-November. The Ballad of the Serpent and the Songbird will be a prequel based on the novel of the same name by author Suzanne Collins, published in 2020. And we are the first to be surprised, but the new trailer for the film is rather tempting. We will follow young Coriolanus (Tom Blyth), last hope of the Snow lineage, once rich and proud, has now fallen from grace in a post-war Capitol. As the 10th Hunger Games approaches, he is reluctantly assigned to mentor Lucy Gray Baird (Rachel Zegler), a tribute from District 12, the poorest and most despised of Panem. The charm of Lucy Gray having captivated the public, Snow sees the opportunity to change her destiny, and will join forces with her to tip fate in their favor. Fighting against his instincts, torn between good and evil, Snow races against time to survive and discover whether he will ultimately become a songbird or a snake.
Obviously, those who have seen the previous films know very well that he will end up becoming the terrible President Snow (played at the time by Donald Sutherland), who will rule Panem with an iron fist.
Hunger Games: The Ballad of the Serpent and the Songbird will be released in theaters on November 15. In the cast, we will also find Viola Davis, Peter Dinklage and Jason Schwartzman. Watch the new trailer:
