The Hunger Games may be over and done with, but that doesn’t mean President Snow (Donald Sutherland) won’t find another way to punish Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) for sparking the rebellion and threatening to topple his regime. The new trailer isn’t due for another five days, but Lionsgate has released a The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 trailer countdown and in it, Snow warns, “It’s the things we love most that destroy us.” Based on his tactics in the last two films, that’s basically his M.O., so Prim (Willow Shields), Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Gale (Liam Hemsworth) better watch out.
On top of that, we’ve also got the final poster for the film. Mockingjay – Part 1 doesn’t hit theaters until November 21st, so it seems a little early to unleash a final poster now, but we did get those two sets of character posters, so how many more do really need? Plus, knowing Lionsgate, their marketing team will really ramp things up as we get closer to the release, so better make room for loads of trailers, TV spots, clips and more. Hit the jump to check out the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 poster and that trailer preview.
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.
