Somehow, a world where children are forced to kill each other for sport and entertainment is getting even darker in this teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.
After the disastrous and rebellious defiance against The Capital at the end of Catching Fire, lines have been drawn in the sand, and the country of Panem is headed for an all-out civil war.
No one is safe under the rule of President Snow (Donald Sutherland), and Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the key to galvanizing the rebel forces and defeating the tyrant.
"No one else can do this but her," Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) tells President Alma Coin (Julianne Moore) of Katniss.
Alma Coin responds, "She won't be able to handle it. The Games destroyed her."
Plutarch bites back, "We need to unite these people out there. She's the face of this rebellion. They'll follow her."
When a boy asks, "Katniss, will you fight for us," she has her one and only line in the teaser. "I am. I will," she responds.
This teaser packs a punch in under a minute, showing the trauma Katniss faces, the violence President Snow is willing to use and builds up to what will undoubtedly be an explosive, action-packed adventure. It's also always sad but nice to see the late Philip Seymour Hoffman in a role.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is set to hit theaters November 21, 2014.
