    Here’s the first trailer released for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 which will be out in November. The preview features President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and a very noticably missing Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), however, looks under President Snow’s control.
