Our first Mockingjay – Part 1 trailer is here! Watch Plutarch Heavensbee and Coin discuss Katniss’ duty as the symbol of the rebellion, and witness our heroine taking on the responsibility of a lifetime. The film is the first of the two part adaptation of the final novel in The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins, and it stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore, Jena Malone, Woody Harrelson, Jeffrey Wright and Elizabeth Banks.

  • MK

    Love it so much! I thought this with Catching Fire and I’m thinking it with Mockingjay…the book is coming to life. November can’t get here soon enough.

  • Morgan

    Wow… that was… NOT ENOUGH! I think we all need a way longer trailer. Even though that few seconds was enough to make me shake.

    • ernest schoenmakers

      I concur like this girl does,

      • Liliandill

        Me too! Photos of Jena for every occasion only from Ernest! :>

  • Soofboart

    Does anybody know what that scene is with the rebels running through the woods and getting shot down? I just re-read mockinjay and didn’t recall anything like that.

    • death2analog

      The same way you wouldn’t recall some of the things that happened in the last 2 movies but the directors added… this is the movie, its based on the book, not made word by word ;)

      • Soofboart

        Yeah that was what I was thinking. I love when they add stuff that we haven’t read already. What do you think it could be?

        • death2analog

          They are escaping from a riot…
          Snow is trying to get districts to believe the Capitol has them in their hands (which is something that never really made sense to me… not even in the book) and if they rebel, they’d obliterate them.

          They didn’t need an actual war: simply rebelling by not providing to the capitol would make the capitol realize who has the power (which is even hinted in both CF and Mockingjay when they can’t get certain luxury articles at the capitol cause of the rebellions).

          I mean if my life is miserable anyway and the Hunger Games exist, why even bother with whatever they could do to me? The way I see it torture or starving to death its pretty much the same.
          Same if I have to send one of my children to the Hunger Games and see them die on TV.

          What worse thing could the capitol do to me?

          • RaeRae

            Except you have to also remember that Snow is a sick bastard. He knows exactly HOW to manipulate people to get the results he wants. He knows how to make the districts SO convinced that they are better off doing their jobs and dying of starvation than dealing with him if they don’t. He was insane AND dying…he had nothing to lose (in his mind).

          • death2analog

            Maybe, but this is an assumption on your (and many others) mind(s).
            I just wish I knew what was the logic behind this… it certainly isn’t survival as their (People in the districts)lives were miserable which leads to depression which in turn leads to giving up on life entirely after some time.

            I don’t know, maybe I’m not seeing the whole picture so if someone has an explanation please post it cause its sort of annoying me now that I can’t find the logic behind this :-/

          • Bla Bla

            They want to rebel but they know they can’t just start a rebellion without planning or leadership because the Capitol are more advanced than them and will stamp it out and then the Capitol will give them an even worse punishment than the hunger games and district 13 started a rebellion and look what happened

          • death2analog

            I don’t why this wasn’t obvious to me before… Thanks!

            You’re right they can’t just do it without planning it.

    • devonwhpfan

      I’m thinking possibly district 7 lumber, it looked like they might have harnesses on and are cutting down trees,. Maybe they’ll do a montage of whats happening in each district!

      • HungerGamesAddict

        That would be awesome, and add a great visual aspect to the film, too!

    • mro

      I was also thinking maybe district 7 and they’re leading the peacekeepers into a trap? It’s like they’re pulling back the curtain on the book and we’ll get to see more of what’s going on everywhere instead of just with Katniss. I’m liking what we’ve seen so far and I’m super excited!

      • ernest schoenmakers

        Johanna´s District!!!!!!!

        • mro

          Johanna’s district ;)

          <>
          I’m wondering how intense it’s going to get in the movie with the other characters. It mentions Johanna and Peeta were next to each other in their cells, but we were never there with them. I wonder if we’ll see more of the harder to watch scenes in part 1. So excited for the full-length trailer!

          • ernest schoenmakers

            Me too where Johanna and Peeta are tortured by the Capitol, these scenes i want to see!!!!!!

    • RaeRae

      I have a feeling the only way they’ll get 2 films out of this book will be to hugely extrapolate on parts of the books (various districts rebelling) that were only mentioned as “news” in 13 and showing them in-full. In fact I hope they do ALL THAT rather than show all of Katniss’ moping around 13. I would also like if they showed more of what was happening in the Capitol to the prisoner Victors. I’d like to see the brainwashing rather than just hear about it.

      • ernest schoenmakers

        The brainwashing of Peeta and torture of Johanna not to mention the interrogation of Enobaria cause we didn´t see much of her in Catching Fire so the girl with the Piranha teeth deserves somewhat more screentime.

    • dalila

      They probably show the rebellion around district 7 . But i think its a bit weird i mean, we se people jump on the three and walk on it 0_o !?!

  • Naomi Morrison

    AMAZING!!!!

  • death2analog

    I enjoy how you never get to see the combat suit Katniss is wearing… cool explosive arrows though.

    • Nir

      just the back,

  • Nir

    OH MY AAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGHHHHH SO EXCITED!!!

  • Nir

    “I am………..I WILL.” Man that was a GREAT delivery!

  • Armotta

    this is full trailer? just 1:04 min?? i expected more than 2 min

    • Sagittaria

      It´s a teaser trailer. The same they showed on ComicCon. When the real trailer comes nobody knows but it´s strange. Bc last year at this time we already had 2 trailers. Not so sure what Lionsgate is planing here

      • Nir

        Because last year they only had one movie to shoot. This year & end of last year it’s 2 back to back.

        • Sagittaria

          And that’s the reason why it’s just a teaser or why we have not a full trailer yet? Do you mean they just didn’t have time?

  • Sagittaria

    It was really good. I liked the tree climbing thing very much, great visual. And beside Jen´s great acting (just 4 words after all) I like the scentence from Coin maybe even more:”The games destroyed her.” This scentence shows the situation we are in in the beginning of the movie. Katniss is totally mentally unstable and this condition only gets worse.
    I also like that the movie shows the dark theme of the last book (I liked the book bc of this so much). It´s not the typical Teenager Book anymore. It shows situations and problems that are not often handled in young adult books.
    Sadly even the great teaser didn´t lift my bad feeling about the Samsung campagin (to Capitol like for me), which also didn´t get better after I learned about the copyright thing Samsung done with the Cupcake designs at Comic Con.

  • HungerGamesAddict

    Wow. This trailer, while much too short, was stunning! The massive visuals, especially the hovercraft scene at the beginning, the rebels (presumably District 7 due to the trees, the ability to quickly scale a tree, and the harnesses) being shot down, and the huge explosion, possibly related to the Nut in District 2 (The rubble looked somewhat similar to the District 2 set in Berlin), or a bomb in one of the Districts. You can see Gale duck as it happens. Julianne Moore totally nailed Coin in the discussion with Plutarch, and hinted at Katniss’s PTSD. Katniss walking through the makeshift hospital, between shots of a grim Cressida and the wounded, sent chills down my spine. Snow now has two assistants, one of which appears to be Robert Knepper… possibly also the torturers of Peeta and Johanna? The luxury of this scene is a stark contrast to what we’ve previously seen, with huge tasseled curtains, the engraved white and golden walls, and the elegant, sinister clothing. The Mockingjay symbol cut into the field is another great visual. The man getting shot through the head is extremely powerful; the rebels will die for the cause. There’s a quick shot of the District 13 Citizens hurrying down the staircases to escape the bunker missiles. The last scene is my favorite: “Are you fighting, Katniss? Are you here to fight with us?” “I am. I will.” Finally we see Katniss’s face, and the impact of what she has gone through and is seeing in the hospital. Jennifer delivers the line flawlessly. I’m literally screaming for more right now :D

    • ernest schoenmakers

      The explosion was filmed in Berlin cause i recognized one piece of the abandoned factory in Berlin. Here´s the pic of it,

      • HungerGamesAddict

        Wow! Great find ernest! That looks identical to what was shown in the trailer, down to the trees and grass in the background! Here’s the trailer version:

        • ernest schoenmakers

          At 2/3 of the trailer you´ll see in the background one of those silo´s at the time of the explosion and indeed in the pic one can see also trees and grass.

          • Sagittaria

            It’s in Berlin Rüdersdorf. That was the set for District 8 scenes. The set where Liam hurt bis ankle

          • ernest schoenmakers

            Didn’t see your selfie, i guess something went wrong with uploading it?

          • Sagittaria

            I didn´t load it up. I look just horrible on the pic. :)

        • ernest schoenmakers

          Do you see the staircase between the 2 silo’s in your pic and compare it to my pic at the right side a little bit on the background where you see a piece of 2 silo’s, look well!!!!

          • HungerGamesAddict

            Yeah, it must have been filmed on that side, because it looks exactly the same :D

          • ernest schoenmakers

            Yeah and i guess this piece of film is shot between the big part of the factory itself and those silo’s cause in your filmstill one can see a piece of the ceiling from the big factory.

      • Ysabel Mockingjay

        Nice observation.

    • Tacos

      Awesome points! I’m pretty sure that is Paylor. It’s a really brief and dark shot but it looks like Patina Miller to me.

  • Em1059

    OMG!!! love this teaser trailer so much :O amazing can’t stop watching and the line “I AM, I WILL” aahhhhhhhhhhh

    • ernest schoenmakers

      Is this you???????

  • saffron

    What is comic con doing to me!!! Im still freakin over the arrow trailer and now this! I cant even cope anymore…….

  • dalila

    It’s awesone but like everyone else, i think it’s too short. I was sure that in this trailer, we would see the people we already know from the other movies ,the very important one, like peeta , haymitch, johanna, finnick and effie (because yes I wanted to see her looking NORMAL so freaking bad, but now I have the feeling they will not show her before a long time :( after all they don’t want us to see all the surprise at the same time… ) so yeah now im excited for the next trailer !

    • Mario Prince-Charming

      Effie is going to look normal in the film? In the book I remember it said that she wasn’t as cheerful, but nothing about her look

      • dalila

        Well francis lawrence said during an interview that effie is going to be a lot more in the movie than in the book and that we will see her a lot working with the rebel for personal reason during the 2 next movie instead of just be captured by the capitol and be there only one time at the end of the book. I just think it would make sense if effie looked normal because the rebels in district 13 all wears the grey uniform and it said in the book that these people hate extravagent thing . So yeah she will probably have to take off her makeup and weird outfits… Anyway, sorry for the LONG chapter !

        • Mario Prince-Charming

          I remember hearing that. But I thought she was going to help out the rebels within the Capital. In the book it speaks of some residents of the Capital secretly helping out. Effie might be one of those people. Thus, having to keep her Capital appearance.

          • dalila

            Oh i did not remember that but you are probably right.

  • Demi

    Aaaaaah! We see how “Antonius” is side by side with Snow. I know they will add new scenes not in the book but I wonder if everyone running down the stairs is when the Capitol bombs D13/evacuation to the lower levels?

  • Lutece

    The Hunger Games Movie Pack app for Samsung Galaxy devices is lovely. It’s largely an amalgamation of the Hunger Games Explorer, Hunger Games Exclusive, Capitol.pn, etc. Still, pretty sweet to have it all in one sleek package.

    Also, reading the screenplays just makes me wish for four hour director cuts of the films.

  • Liliandill

    I’ve thrills!!! OUR LEADER THE MOCKINGJAY! The scene in the hospital will break my heart, it’s just magnificent… And this huge symbol of Mockingjay in the grass!!!

  • pony

    teaser video… so, will I meet the real “first” trailer soon?

  • Ysabel Mockingjay

    The movie of all movies
    All hail the Mockingjay part 1 teaser trailer

  • ellen

    it seems like they are making coin a good character!!!!!on the background info given out by Francis Lawrence he says Julianne More brings such warmth and charisma to the character that anyone would follow her!!!!!!! this is not how I saw her in the books. Did I totally misinterpret her in the books????? This is really going to mess up the film for me:(
