Yesterday, we got the first trailer to the latest installment in the Divergent series, the upstart challenger to the dystopian YA adaptation crown. Except, it wasn’t so much a trailer as it was a recap of the movies that came before. Pretty lame, right? Well, not to fear, because the undisputed YA champion is here to show you how things are supposed to be done!

Yes, Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen is back for the final time in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 and there’s a brand new trailer out that… that… Well, actually it’s nothing but a recap of the movies that came before. Sure there are like 10 seconds of new footage at the end, but the way this is shot and framed mostly plays out like a badly directed music video in which the main character is constantly stuck in some soft-focus daydream.

Kind of disappointing really, especially if you were hoping this preview would be picking up that cliffhanger ending of the first film. But hey, at least we got an okay-ish new poster for the movie!

Check out the musical flashback trailer below and see what you think.

With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 also stars Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Julianne Moore, Mahershala Ali, Natalie Dormer, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Evan Ross. It is scheduled for release locally on November 20, 2015.
