‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1’ First Official Teaser Trailer: Are You Fighting?

As much as I enjoyed those teasers released by Lionsgate showcasing Johanna and Peeta spinning around for 2 minutes, this official trailer shows a lot more about what’s coming up. Including Katniss Everdeen, the Mockingjay.

Introducing newcomers like Julianne Moore as President Coin and Natalie Dormer as Cressida, the trailer also shows older characters like Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) speaking about Katniss’ ability to become the Mockingjay. President Coin expresses her concern that Katniss won’t be able to live up to the Mockingjay name because the Games have destroyed her spirit.

“Are you fighting, Katniss? Are you here to fight with us?”

“I am. I will.”

See the trailer above, before the film comes out November 21, 2014.

First ‘Mockingjay’ Teaser: Panem Forever

President Snow delivers a message to the remaining districts with Peeta Mellark by his side.

The Capitol TV logo starts off the teaser, implying that this is what the citizens in the various districts are watching. As President Snow talks about keeping the peace, various words pop out on screen: Unity, Prosperity, Sacrifice.

Through all this, the camera’s centered mainly on President Snow, but when it pulls back, it shows a seemingly robotic and hijacked Peeta. Those who have read the books will understand why. It isn’t until Snow ends his telecast with “Panem Today, Panem Tomorrow, Panem Forever” that Peeta looks directly at the camera.
