Fresh off his Emmy win, Danny Strong (“Game Change”), is set to write the film adaptation of “Mockingjay”, which is the last book in “The Hunger Games” trilogy. The film will be split into two parts. According to Variety.com, the first part is scheduled for release on Nov. 21, 2014, and the second part will open on Nov. 20, 2015.

Frankly, I don’t think it is necessary to split the final book into two films but it seems like this franchise is following the same trend as the Harry Potter and Twilight films.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Review

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is the sixth installment of the Harry Potter series and I would consider it one of the best books of the series. So what did I think of the movie? I really liked it. There were some creative changes made in the movie that weren’t in the book, but I thought it worked for character development and ultimately a good setup for the last movie, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”, which will be split into two parts.

Synopsis via IMDB.com:
In the sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft, and in both wizard and muggle worlds Lord Volemort and his henchmen are increasingly active. With vacancies to fill at Hogwarts, Professor Dumbledore persuades Horace Slughorn, back from retirement to become the potions teacher, while Professor Snape receives long awaited news. Harry Potter, together with Dumbledore, must face treacherous tasks to defeat his evil nemesis.
