The red carpet turns black for the Berlin premiere of the smash hit Hunger Games series finale ''Mockingjay: Part 2''. Rough Cut (no reporter narration)
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Stars of the Hunger Games franchise said they were sad to see the end of the box office smash Hunger Games series as they assembled on a final black carpet for the premiere of "Mockingjay - Part 2" on Tuesday (November 3). Based on Suzanne Collins' young adult novels, the films catapulted star Jennifer Lawrence to stardom and have won a global following since their launch in 2012. For Lawrence, the reality of the series ending had yet to sink in. Despite the autumn chill in Berlin -- where a number of Mockingjay - Part 2 scenes were filmed -- thousands of fans waited to catch a glimpse of a cast and crew who were effusive with their praise of the large international team who worked together on the series. Actor Josh Hutcherson, who has played Everdeen's fellow tribute and one-time fiancé Peeta Mallark in the series since the first film, added that the large-scale cast including old hand Donald Sutherland as well as an array of rising stars, was a "family" he would miss. Oscar winning actress Julianne Moore agreed. As Everdeen and her allies head towards a climatic face-off with Sutherland's tyrannical President Snow, it looks as if good might finally triumph over evil for the residents of Panem - but in the world of the Hunger Games, nothing is that simple. But after the success of the first three films, Mockingjay - Part 2 is set for a happy ending in box office takings to draw the series to a close.
