Two cryptic teaser trailers have been released for the forthcoming Hunger Games sequel, Mockingjay: Part 1, but now there’s one with a greater insight into the film.
The trailer is for the first part of the film adaptation of the third book in Suzanne Collins’ hugely successful young adult fiction trilogy.
The teaser is just over a minute long but shows Jennifer Lawrence, as Katniss Everdeen, join the rebellion to become its leader as President Snow (Donald Sutherland) cracks down on those using the mockingjay symbol to resist him and the Capitol.
Most poignantly, the trailer is narrated by the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, who hadn’t completed filming as Plutarch Heavensbee, the former Gamemaker who goes on to command rebel forces, when he died in February. His prominence in the trailer shows that the studio hasn’t cut his performance in light of the tragic circumstances.
The trailer also gives audiences the first glimpse of two new cast members: Julianne Moore as President Snow’s rival and Mockingjay’s main antagonist, and British Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer as Cressida, another rebel.
