‘Hunger Games’ Teaser: The Mockingjay Lives

The latest teaser trailer for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1” has an important message for the citizens of Panem: unity.

While President Snow’s (Donald Sutherland) latest propaganda campaign — which features captured victors Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna Mason (Jena Malone) — is again meant to instill conformity for fear of retaliation, it doesn’t go as well as his first. Instead, the rebels of District 13 break through the telecast to give the citizens a dose of what is perhaps Snow’s biggest fear: hope.

The first half of the “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” premieres Nov. 21 and is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Danny Strong and Peter Craig. Jennifer Lawrence stars as the fearless Katniss Everdeen in the story based on the popular Suzanne Collins novels.

    That gave me chills

  2. I’m so excited for this movie!

  3. Wow! I’m really excited to see this! What happened with Phillip Hoffman’s character though, now that he’s deceased? His character is important to the story. I’m not sure anyone can fill his shoes in that role. He was excellent!

    • Olivia says:

      The film was already finished filming by the time he died. The post production and remaining production related portions were more than likely finished as well. He was indeed excellent and hopefully the director decides to dedicate both parts in his memory.

    • Hadley says:

      I heard that he filmed almost all of his parts before he passed so whatever he didn’t finish they used CG-esque technology to replace him as if he filmed it, or gave his remaining parts to another character.

    I hope Finn survives. Didn’t care for how he was just killed off when his story is actually more interesting than Katniss’.
