Just weeks away from its forthcoming world premiere at Fantasia Festival, Cash Only helmer Malik Bader’s new action thriller, Killerman, is finally making a case for itself with a terrific new green band trailer as of Thursday.

Young adult bookworms have had their eye on actress Jennifer Lawrence for a few years now as she’s morphed into a cinematic success story. Not only does she lead one of Hollywood’s biggest action franchises to date, but she’s also a Guiness 2015 World Record holder, which undoubtedly pleases the folks at Lionsgate ahead of the upcoming release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.
The film is an epic story of love in a time of war pitting young archer Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) in the crosshairs of a post apocalyptic future dictatorship led by President Snow whose annual life-or-death gaming events have been Panem’s only means of suppressing its masses, until now.
The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Danny Strong and Peter Craig and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.
