So as not to bore you to death, I will dutifully avoid sharing my own personal thoughts on The Hunger Games’ third and final book, Mockingjay. (Essentially, if you haven’t read it by now, don’t. There’s a sufficient plot summary on Wikipedia.)
Anyway, Mockingjay: Part 1’s first trailer was released two weeks ago, and it did a commendable job of producing a “real-life” PSA for Panem’s Capitol. It also gave us a glimpse at Peeta’s depressing, new reality—which, if you read the book/Wikipedia page, you’ll understand. No spoilers here!
The movie’s second trailer follows a similar Capitol-approved path—until it gets interrupted by Beetee, one of the rebel tributes whom we first met in Catching Fire. As for his message, all I will say is that it’s certainly coup d’état-inducing.
I want to give a big round of applause to the franchise’s marketing team, because man, they’re killing it. Watch the trailer below, and click through the slideshow above to get a first glimpse at Mockingjay’s cast of characters.
