We see Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) learning that Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) is alive, but her relief is shortlived as she realizes that he is being used as a weapon of propaganda by the Capitol, forcing her to issue an ultimatum — if District 13 doesn’t launch a rescue attempt, she’ll give up her position as the inspirational “Mockingjay” in the war against President Snow.
“It’s the things we love most that destroy us,” Donald Sutherland’s Snow warns our heroine, who admits she “never wanted any of this.”
“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” hits theaters on November 21. Tickets for the new installment of the hit franchise go on sale on October 29 at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET.
