Natalie Dormer and Philip Seymour Hoffman in first trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay

Katniss Everdeen joins the rebellion in new footage from the third film in the Hunger Games franchise

As we gear up for the third and penultimate Hunger Games film, we’ve had an endless stream of images and posters, but no footage… until now. The teaser-trailer shown over the weekend at Comic-Con has been sent out to the masses with tantalising snippets of new material for fans to pore over as they await the film’s release this November. 


So, what’s new? The minute-long video gives us our first glimpse of Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer playing film director Cressida who charts Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) as she leads the rebellion against the Capitol. With one side of her blonde hair shaved, Dormer looks a million miles from scheming Margaery Tyrell as she watches Katniss make her way through District 13. 

The footage also shows us Philip Seymour Hoffman in his final role as gamesmaker Plutarch Heavensbee, advising President Coin (Julianne Moore) that the Districts will rise up in support of the Mockingjay. 

Accompanied by increasing scenes of rebellion against Donald Sutherland’s President Snow, the trailer ends with Katniss’ vow to join the uprising. Take a look below… 

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is released on 21 November 2014
