The very first teaser trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 has been released by Lionsgate, and while it is doubtful the footage will actually appear in the film, it is very creepy stuff.
Presented as a public service announcement, the one minute teaser see’s President Snow (Donald Sutherland) delivering a message to those wanting to rise up against him, with Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) doing as he is told stood next to him. At the end of the first film Peeta was kidnapped, and in the sequel we will see Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) lead a rebellion against Snow.
Sutherland, as always, nails Snow’s cold icy persona, warning the rebellion “If you resist the system, you starve yourself. If you fight against it, it is you who will bleed.”
