Anticipation for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is mounting faster than a pair of jackrabbits. With just over two months to go until the end of Katniss’s journey begins, that’s another eight weeks for film journalists to struggle with the grammatical order of its title. It’s a colon, then a hyphen.
Oh yes, and it also means – there’s going to be a full-length trailer. Soon. In fact, it’s so soon (five days) that Lionsgate have decided they don’t want to be greedy and keep it under wraps. Following on from the release of the last poster, they want to tantalize and taunt fans of the million-dollar teen franchise with a teaser for the teaser. Unleashed below is a 16-second glimpse at what we can expect to see on Monday. It’s scant on… well, anything really. The only new spot of footage is the voiceover by Donald Sutherland’s President Snow. Seeing as that’s it, we won’t spoil it and tell you his cutting line.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 arrives in theatres on November 21st. Expect lots of cosplay.
