Lionsgate has released a new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 teaser trailer. In the penultimate chapter, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) leads a revolution through the districts to rescue Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), and bring down President Snow (Donald Sutherland) once and for all. I’m not sure any of this trailer will appear in the actual movie, but it does deliver not only Snow’s none-too-subtle hint that any rebellion will be violently snuffed out, but it also Peeta standing alongside the evil leader. This is probably intriguing to those who haven’t read the books, and were wondering what happened to Peeta following the events of Catching Fire.
Hit the jump to check out the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 teaser trailer. I’m curious if Lionsgate will follow the same strategy as they did last year, and release a full trailer at Comic-Con in July. The film opens November 21st, and also stars Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, and Julianne Moore.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1:
The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Danny Strong and Peter Craig and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik.
