Alongside Jennifer on the red carpet was teen music sensation Lorde, who was given the role of curating and writing the music for the soundtrack accompanying the dystopian blockbuster. Her track Yellow Flicker Beat is the official theme song for Mockingjay.

Mockingjay, which is the third and final novel in the book series, has been split in two, much like previous adaptations such as the last installments of the Harry Potter and Twilight series. Part One follows Katniss after her escape from the third quarter quell, and her journey into becoming the symbol of hope for Panem, whilst her usual partner in events Peeta, has been tortured and is being used by the Capitol.

Whilst Part Two of Mockingjay is set for release next year, it’s also been announced that Lionsgate, along with the Dutch media Imagine Nation and the American Triangular Entertainment, are planning a live version of the film for London, which is set to hit the UK in 2016!
