The one minute teaser shows Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss return to her impoverished home district to see the destruction wrought by the Capitol.

Set to Lorde’s soundtrack “Yellow Flicker Beat”, the trailer also features the voiceover of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, who is heard talking about Katniss’ return home.

“Make it personal for her, let her see what the Capitol did to District 12.”

The trailer also shows Katniss visiting the Victors’ Village, her home after winning the games, where she finds a fresh white rose among the rubble suggesting the recent presence of President Snow.

An official synopsis for the new film tells fans they will find Katniss is District 13 “after she literally shatters the games forever”.

Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Donald Sutherland, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks and Sam Claflin all return for the sequel.

Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer stars as documentary maker Cressida and Julianne Moore as President Coin.


Directed by Francis Lawrence, the Hunger Games films are based on Suzanne Collins’ novel series which, has sold more than 65 million copies in the US to date.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 will be released in the UK on 21 November, with Part 2 due to follow a year later in November 2015.
