After showing this to Comic-Con fans over the weekend, Lionsgate have now released a minute long trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 on-line, and you can view the teaser below.
The teaser thrillingly sets up the epic two-part conclusion to The Hunger Games, and the visuals and choice of words used in the teaser are very effective. Seriousness is key here, with lots of tragedy, emotion and dangerous times ahead as The Capitol face an impending uprising. It is also great seeing the late Philip Seymour Hoffman on screen as Plutarch Heavensbee, and his conversation with the excellent Julianne Moore (making her Hunger Games debut as Alma Coin) looks riveting stuff!
