Teaser Trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 District 9 poster from the District Heroes Collection

Here is a teaser trailer for the next installment of The Hunger Games, which will be released in two parts. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 will be released in November, and Part 2 will be released a year after that. Donald Sutherland stars in the first teaser trailer which is couched as a public service announcement from President Snow, the president of the oppressive regime that runs the country Panem and its 12 districts.

Snow is dressed all in white against a white set and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) appears at his side looking noble. He is also dressed in white and you might notice how uncomfortable his collar looks. Citizens are told they are required to view President Snow's official Panem Address, "Together As One," produced by Capitol TV. The speech is part of a major PR offensive by the government to intimidate the rebels and threaten the population. The government also released posters of "heroes" from each district to showcase how proper citizens behave. This poster is from District 9, the Grain District. Triti Lancaster is the featured hero. The government says about District 9: "The Capitol gives high praise to the citizens of its Grain District! We have taken note of your sprightly efforts, and to honor the spirit of Panem’s bountiful 'Bread Basket', we hope you find continued inspiration in Triti Lancaster as your model of District 9 heroism."

In the video President Snow gives an inspiring and chilling speech in which he makes it very clear to the rebels what he will do to them if they revolt against the government. He tells them to be proud of all their hard work and that in return for it the government feeds them. Then he warns, "If you resist the system, you will starve yourself. If you fight against it, it is you who will bleed...I know you will stand with me, with us, with all of us, together, as one." Message received, President Snow. Take a look:
