‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ Trailer Released: ‘Peeta is the Capitol’s Weapon’ [Video]

The first official, full-length trailer for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ has been released.

Just in two month the movie will be hit the U.S. theaters, but the the first full trailer for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1”was released only this week.

“Mockingjay: Part 1” is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Danny Strong and Peter Craig. The movie, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Sam Claflin and Jena Malone, with Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland, arrives in theaters on 20 November.

The film, helmed by Francis Lawrence, is the first part of the adaptation of the final book in Suzanne Collins’ dystopian trilogy. Katniss finds herself becoming a symbol of Panem’s revolution against the all-controlling Capitol in what looks to be the darkest installment of the franchise to date.

Determined to rescue Peeta from the clutches of evil President Snow, Katniss finds herself the reluctant leader of a revolution from within District 13, assisted by her best friend and love interest Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth).

Jennifer Lawrence opens the scene as Katniss, saying, “I never wanted any of this. I never wanted to be in the games. I just wanted to save my sister and keep Peeta alive.”

“Miss Everdeen”, replies ominous-looking Donald Sutherland as President Snow, setting up the plot of the upcoming film: “It’s the things we love most that destroy us.”

In this trailer she then threatens her rebel army if they don’t help her save Peeta Mellark, who was hold captive by Capitol.

“You will rescue Peeta at the earliest opportunity or you will find another Mockingjay,” Katniss declares.

A previous trailer, released in July, featured the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, portraying the rebellious Hunger Games game maker Plutarch Heavensbee, who gives stern advice to District 13’s President Coin.

Katniss was named the highest grossing action movie heroine in the 2015 Guinness World Record book earlier this month. Lawrence’s courageous character helped earn the first two Hunger Games movies £928 million worldwide, says Independent.
