Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy may be the highest grossing movie of the year so far, but most of us don’t expect that to last much past the point where Lionsgate releases The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1. We suspect Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and company will take the annual box office crown for a second straight year. To make sure that happens, the studio is going to make a big push leading up to the release, and though we already saw the “final trailer,” they’ve released this short one for your perusal.
This is a quick hitter, and instead of focusing on the larger picture, it zooms in on a single element, though one that carries a great deal of emotional weight in the context of the story. After the first sequel, Catching Fire, Katniss finds herself in District 13, which was supposedly destroyed long ago. This is the seat of the rebellion, and as the face of the uprising against the Capital—both figuratively and literally the face—they want to make full use of her.
