New Hunger Games trailer

Mockingjay Part 1

Three cheers (or would a three-finger salute be more fitting?) the teaser trailer for had its debut at Comic Con this weekend.

The new trailer doesn't feature the haunting four-note whistle song - notable because whenever we think about The Hunger Games that spooky tune creeps into our heads - but still captures the stirring, suspense-packed appeal of all the previous films.

The story picks up with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13, dealing with the fallout post Catching Fire’s (literally) game-shattering showdown.

The clip gives a glimpse of Plutarch Heavensbee (the late Philip Seymour Hoffman) and President Coin (Julianne Moore) discussing Katniss’ role as the face of the rebellion, followed by scenes of war.
