Watch This: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1

The Hunger Games

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. Based on what we know about these characters, I’m guessing Peeta’s compliance is a sham.

The whole Hunger Games series is such a metaphor for our current political situation that it’s fascinating even though it’s somewhat predictable. Katniss is the perfect female leader and heroine.

If you didn’t watch the first Hunger Games film because you thought it was a young person’s film, I urge you to take another look.
