Hollywood box office watchers take heart. The $100 million weekend hauls will be making their triumphant return with Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Yeah, long title, but it’s going to make an absurd amount of money.
Jennifer Lawrence is back, reprising her role as reluctant rebel leader, Katniss Everdeen. This is the first movie to deal with the actual rebellion. We saw glimpses in Catching Fire, but this new trailer shows off the guerilla combat and Lawrence’s transformation into a bona fide action hero.
Her character’s reluctance is borne out in the voiceover to start the trailer. “I never wanted any of this,” Lawrence is heard saying at the start of the new clip. “I never wanted to be in the Games. I just wanted to save my sister.”
This new trailer arrives on the heels of character posters. It feels like the Star Wars release. You actually get excited to see the theatrical posters. The release features the ‘rebel fighters’ that will be in this film and its sequel, due out in late 2015.
Katniss finally gets the poster treatment, with her back facing the camera. You can tell its her by her trademark braid and archery gear. Seems like she makes her own odds.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think. The film releases on November 21.
