Video of the Day: Katniss returns in new trailer for filmed-in-Atlanta ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’

The first official teaser trailer for the November 21 film has arrived

After fans were treated to only creepy Capitol propaganda videos for the last month, the first official movie trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay  — Part 1 has finally arrived. The minute-long teaser, which debuted over the weekend at San Diego Comic-Con (along with the new Walking Dead season 5 trailer), sets up the theme of first several pages of Mockingjay—the leaders of the District 13 rebellion (including the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee and Julianne Moore as President Coin) want Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) to be their figurehead as they head to war with the Capitol, but the question remains whether the Girl on Fire, who is still dealing with the trauma of surviving two Hunger Games, is up to the task. But the ever-determined Katniss declares that she will join the fight. The trailer offers glimpses of the Atlanta History Center’s Swan House and Pullman Yard, along with lots of action admid tall Georgia pines.

The film hits theaters on November 21.
