The prequel spin-off film The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, directed by Francis Lawrence and based on Suzanne Collins’s second book, has a trailer from Lionsgate.
In addition to Ashley Liao and Fionnula Flanagan, the movie stars Rachel Zegler, Tom Blyth, Viola Davis, Peter Dinklage, Burn Gorman, Jason Schwartzman, Hunter Schafer, and Viola Davis.
18-year-old Coriolanus Snow (Tom Blyth) is the final hope for his waning dynasty. This once-proud family had fallen from prominence in a post-war Capitol years before he would become the oppressive President of Panem.
The adolescent Snow is disturbed when he is assigned to train Lucy Grey Baird (Rachel Zegler), the girl tribute from underprivileged District 12, with the 10th annual Hunger Games drawing near. Snow believes he may be able to change the odds in their favour after Lucy Grey seizes Panem’s attention by defiantly singing during the reaping ceremony.
Snow and Lucy Gray’s battle for survival against the clock will finally expose who is a songbird and snake by combining their natural tendencies towards theatrics and newly acquired political savvy.
Lionsgate will release this in theatres starting November 17th, 2023!
