The official synopsis is as follows: “The Hunger Games: The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes follows a young Coriolanus who is the last hope for his failing lineage, the once-proud Snow family that has fallen from grace in a post-war Capitol.
“With his livelihood threatened, Snow is reluctantly assigned to mentor Lucy Gray Baird, a tribute from the impoverished District 12. But after Lucy Gray’s charm captivates the audience of Panem, Snow sees an opportunity to shift their fates.
“With everything he has worked for hanging in the balance, Snow unites with Lucy Gray to turn the odds in their favour. Battling his instincts for both good and evil, Snow sets out on a race against time to survive and reveal if he will ultimately become a songbird or snake.”
The Hunger Games: The Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes is set to be released on Nov 17. It will be the fifth film of the Hunger Games franchise – which has grossed close to US$3 billion worldwide.
