|The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 (2015)|
The latest sequel in the Hunger Games franchise hasn’t performed as well as “Mockingjay Part 1," but it has made over $445 million worldwide so far. Director Francis Lawrence turned to talented artists like Raymond Prado to get the emotional scenes right.

The scene is from near the end when Katniss is given the task of executing President Snow. The scene is different from the book in that Snow falls to the ground choking on blood instead of being surrounded by the crowd. Another minor difference is that Snow's hair is a lot longer than in the movies.

Official The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 Summary
"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 now brings the franchise to its powerful final chapter in which Katniss Everdeen [Jennifer Lawrence] realizes the stakes are no longer just for survival - they are for the future. With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow [Donald Sutherland] in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends - including Gale [Liam Hemsworth], Finnick [Sam Claflin] and Peeta [Josh Hutcherson] - Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced."
