1. The first teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 was released today in the form of a speech given by President Snow (Donald Sutherland) to the citizens of Panem.
Beware, though! This teaser contains a pretty big SPOILER.
2. At first, we just see and hear President Snow, ominously extolling the power of the Capitol.
4. So has Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) switched sides and joined the Capitol?!?
At the end of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, viewers learned that Peeta had been captured by the Capitol. Everyone who has read Suzanne Collins’ novel Mockingjay knows what is going on here, but suffice it to say, it’s not a happy turn of events at all.
5. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 opens Nov. 21, 2014.
