Watch the New Hunger Games Trailer With Jennifer Lawrence

1 minute read

A new trailer for the next installment of the Hunger Games series shows Jennifer Lawrence alone and aghast as she wanders a bleak, destroyed world.

In the preview for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, Katniss, played by Lawrence, is sent back to her native District 12 to see the horror wrought on it by the Capitol, the malicious central government of the Hunger Games universe. A Lorde track, “Yellow Flick Beat,” plays in the background.

In the short video, Plutarch Heavensbee, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman, tells President Coin, played by Julianne Moore, that they must motivate Katniss by “making it personal for her” and letting “her see what the Capitol did to District 12.”

Meanwhile, Coin wonders if Katniss can “handle” fighting in the revolt against the government, after “the games destroyed her.”

“No one else can do this but her,” says Heavensbee, in the video.
