After a week of anticipation, Lionsgate has released the first trailer for The Hunger Game: Mockingjay, Part 2!
The first trailer is a doozy and kicks off what’s sure to be an exciting promotional campaign centered around Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Panem’s rebellion against President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and the Capitol. In this pleasantly large preview, Katniss rallies the troops and vows to get back at Snow. Watch below:
There’s lots of great footage in this preview. Our favorites scene are Katniss walking in front of the citizens of Panem, and Finnick’s (Sam Claflin’s) line about this being the 76th Hunger Games.
The first Mockingjay, Part 2 trailer arrives after the studio released several new stills over the past few days via various cast members’ social media pages. Check ’em out below:
Lionsgate also teased the media on Monday with these promotional kits which feature a piece of President Snow’s crumbling regime. To open these boxes, you needed to know the three-digit code (which ended up being “451,” a reference to Squad 451 in the Mockingjay book). Amazing, right?
The USB drive included a digital copy of today’s trailer, but it was locked behind a password protected zip file. In other words, we were holding the trailer in our hands, but we couldn’t watch it until today. The password ended up being “R3volut!on,” for those of you who are curious.
Mockingjay, Part 2 opens in theaters this November.
What do you think of the first ‘Mockingjay, Part 2’ trailer?
Expect more hype (and possibly another trailer) next month at San Diego Comic-Con. Lionsgate unveiled a major trailer for Mockingjay, Part 1 at SDCC ’14, so it wouldn’t surprise us if they did something similar this year.
