The Hunger Games films have been a smash success, bringing the trilogy of novels written by Suzanne Collins to life with epic special effects and heartfelt acting. Last year, Hunger Games: Catching Fire set theaters ablaze with a sequel worthy of the first movie, and now fans of Katniss Everdeen’s rebellion against the Capitol can feast their eyes on the teaser for Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.
Set to release on November 21 this year, the flick will explore the first half of Collins’ 3rd and final book in the trilogy. Jennifer Lawrence will return to dazzle the screen with Everdeen’s bravery, compassion, and action hero abilities, while she faces off against the villainous President Coriolanus Snow (played by Donald Sutherland) for the fate of the nation of Panem.
In the teaser released by Lionsgate, President Snow speaks to the audience in the form of a government propaganda commercial, and Sutherland pulls off that smoky “benevolent dictator” voice perfectly. “Your districts are the body. The capital is the beating heart. Your hard work feeds us, and in return, we feed and protect you,” he says, and you almost want to believe him, especially with the beautiful white colors on display. However, we all know better by now! I can’t wait to see the next trailer that Lionsgate releases…
