The first teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 took the form of a video message from the Capitol, in which President Snow (Donald Sutherland) cloaked his threats to the rebels in platitudes about peace and unity. In the second teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the rebels fight back with a message of their own. Watch it after the jump.
Lionsgate / the Capitol / District 13 unveiled the video on YouTube.
Seeing Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) by Snow’s side in the last video was chilling enough, but the new video ups the ante by putting Johanna (Jena Malone) up there as well. It’s a heartbreaking transformation for a girl who spent her pre-Games interview screaming obscenities at those responsible for the Quarter Quell. Fortunately for them, help may be on the way as Beetee (Jeffrey Wright) has apparently found a way to hack into the system.
Francis Lawrence returns to direct the third installment of the Hunger Games series, which once again stars Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Sam Claflin, and Liam Hemsworth. Julianne Moore joins the cast this time as the leader of District 13. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 opens November 21, followed by Part 2 on November 20, 2015.
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. The novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.
