They may have started on the wrong foot at the beginning of “The Hunger Games” -- Effie (Elizabeth Banks) was from the Capital, a dressed-up world of heavy make-up and frilly costumes. On the other hand, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) was a plainly dressed archer who volunteered to save her sister from the dreaded Hunger Games. Now, in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2,” the two look closer than ever.

Entertainment Weekly shared the photo of Elizabeth Banks and Jennifer Lawrence in the film. The two are alone, formally dressed and look ready for a big event. Effie is looking more like the older sister Katniss was always forced to be. This time, it's Katniss who looks like she needs a pep talk, an insecure side of her not really seen since the first movie.

Director Francis Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly, “There is some serious girl power in this movie.” He may have much more to share when “The Hunger Games” cast present at their final San Diego Comic-Con together in the coming week. According to The Slanted, the director will be joined by Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Willow Shields, and producer Nina Jacobson for the major fan event of the summer.

After the first trailer dropped in June, fans were able to get their first glimpse at the end of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2.” This is the last movie of “The Hunger Game” franchise. So, get your bow and arrow and tissues at the ready. It’s going to be a tough watch.

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2” opens in theaters Nov. 20.
