The New Mockingjay Trailer Will Make Your Heart Weep

Another Comic-Con, another Hunger Games trailer. Not that we mind, of course, the Capitol propaganda teasers were so cool that everyone has been itching for an actual Mockingjay trailer. Or at least a teaser, which is what Lionsgate/Francis Craig debuted at a special media screening Friday (the film didn’t have its own panel this year).

Three days later, it’s finally time for the rest of us peasants to witness the trailer, which made its way online – through the official Hunger Games youtube channel – on Monday. And let’s just say, have your tissues handy. This trailer is emosh.

Not only do we get to see a “destroyed” Katniss rise up to fight the good fight, we also get several glimpses of the new actors and characters – Julianne Moore is every bit the President Coin fans wanted to see and Natalie Dormer makes a brief appearance as Cressida, looking fierce as usual. Then, of course, there’s the moment we hear and then see Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Plutarch Heavensbee. After Hoffman’s death in February, the production team was at a loss about what to do with his character. In the end, Plutarch was kept in the film and the trailer is smart (and slow) with his reveal, making it a moment, almost as emotionally charged as the battle scenes that follow.

Watch the second Mockingjay trailer below.

The story: an emotionless, ruined Katniss has been placed as the face of a rebellion, bigger than she could have imagined. But as the Mockingjay, she is a symbol and must be protected from the real fight at all costs.

And then, the final blow. “Are you fighting, Katniss? Are you here to fight with us, Katniss?”

“I am. I will.”

Close-up of Katniss’ face. Rue’s whistle.

And that is how you trailer. Good job, Lionsgate.
