Like the whispering song of a bird that becomes the cry of a nation, Katniss fandom has been united for months in its fevered anticipation for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. And now like a glowing blaze of hype that threatens to swallow up the whole internet, the trailer is here and it is as glorious to behold as any clothing confection that Cinna could dream up. The games are over, and it’s time for a deep breath before the war.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 adapts the first half of Suzanne Collins’ book and boasts the cast of Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Natalie Dormer, Julianne Moore, Stanley Tucci, and Donald Sutherland.
In the future Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) must fight for her impoverished District 12 in a dystopian North American regime called “Panem.” After several Hunger Games, contests to the death between children, go awry, Katniss finds herself participating in a massive rebellion against the authoritarian government.
Directed by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire helmer Francis Lawrence, both Mockingjay films are being shot concurrently and are scheduled for a Thanksgiving release in November 2014 and 2015, respectively.
