The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 trailer spoils the death of one major character

As is the case with many trailers, some of a film's more cunning moments are often revealed in the marketing efforts. Lionsgate isn't concerned with revealing - see: spoiling - the fate of one important supporting character in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, as its latest preview plays like one long tribute to ...


... Katniss' sister.

The trailer, entitled "For Prim," chronicles all of the kindness Katniss has shown her younger sibling, starting with that time she belted out "I volunteer as tribute!" back in the first Hunger Games. It's a rather touching video montage of the two onscreen sisters, if only it didn't give away one huge plot point.

Amid all the tear-jerking musical cues, perhaps the biggest clue to her fate is the text inserts. "This November, her sacrifice is the ultimate tribute," they read, which pretty much spell out a grim end for Prim.

Find out how the poor little thing bites it when Mockingjay - Part 2 opens in theaters in the US on November 20 - the UK gets it a day earlier on November 19!
