I kinda wish studios would quit releasing teasers before the actual official trailer, because it's always too short and I want more More MORE! (cue Billy Idol). But of course I'm just one small voice in a sea of billions, many of whom got the chance to feast their eyes on the newest clip from THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY -- PART 1 at Comic-Con a few days ago in San Diego. For the rest of us who didn't attend the megafest, I've just received it in my inbox this AM and it's...such a tease.
If you've read the book, then you already know that Mockingjay thrusts Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) into a military-style environment where she is declared the official leader of the rebellion. This clip does a pretty good job at setting up that scene, with Plutarch Heavensbee (the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman) trying to convince President Coin (Julianne Moore) that "No one else can do this but [Katniss]," to which she responds menacingly: "She won't be able to handle it. The Games have destroyed her." If they stick to the book, you'll see a lot more of this friction between Coin and Katniss, who struggles to prevail in a world that's essentially been decimated.
