Eerie Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 trailer debuts
The first look at the latest installment in The Hunger Games franchise is out and, man, is it eerie.
Mockingjay — Part 1 isn't out for five months, but the sinister President Snow (Donald Sutherland) is already dispatching a menacing message from the Capitol. And it includes serious hints about a bloody crackdown against an uprising from the districts.
"If you resist the system, you starve yourself," he warns. "If you fight against it, it's you who will bleed."
Poor Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) is in this teaser, too. It's our first glimpse of Katniss Everdeen's (Jennifer Lawrence) love interest since he was captured at the end of the last instalment, Catching Fire.
The missive is just the latest in a string of propaganda-style promotions for the film, including a creepy Panem poster campaign and a website for district heroes.
Check it out — what do you think? Are you excited for the film's finale?
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 hits Canadian theatres November 21. The fourth and final film in the series, Mockingjay — Part 2, is due out November 2015.
