The first teaser trailer reveals a glimpse of The Rebellion against the Capitol. After the first official poster was released, featuring a beheaded statue of President Snow, followed by Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson revealing the first official photos from the final film of the franchise.
The trailer begins with a moment of happiness and celebration in the midst of the war that is going on as we see Finnick (Sam Claflin) and Annie getting married. Despite this, Katniss (Lawrence) can’t afford to be distracted and knows that words are not enough to stop the Capitol. “Nothing good is safe while Snow is alive,” says Katniss. “Snow has to pay for what he has done.”
But the Capitol leader is not going to go quietly. “Make no mistake…the game isn’t over,” he says with a grin.
The rest of the preview shows the war intensifying as the warring districts rise up against the Capitol and bring the war to an end, one way or another. The last installment in the franchise based on Suzanne Collins’ best-selling books depicts how Katniss Everdeen fully embraces becoming a leader of District 13 in an all-out rebellion to overthrow the Capitol. Lawrence joins returning actors Donald Sutherland (President Snow), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark), Julianne Moore (President Alma Coin), and Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne). Franchise director Francis Lawrence helms the final film.
“Ladies and Gentlemen,” says Finnick, at the end of the trailer, “Welcome to the 76th Hunger Games.”
