Tantalizing sneak peeks have been released, but on Monday, the first full trailer for "Mockingjay Part 1" was posted, and things are reaching a boiling point in Panem.
Katniss' (Jennifer Lawrence) "Hunger Games" boyfriend Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) is a captive of evil President Snow (Donald Sutherland), forced to make a video urging the rebels to put down their arms.
Not likely, bread boy, what with these explosive arrows that can shoot down planes, and with hunky Gale (Liam Hemsworth) back at Katniss' side.
"Peeta is the Capitol's weapon the same way you're ours," Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) explains to Katniss.
But if she has her way, he won't be theirs for long. "You will rescue Peeta at the earliest opportunity, or you will find another Mockingjay," she tells Plutarch Heavensbee (the late Philip Seymour Hoffman) and President Alma Coin (Julianne Moore, with icy-gray hair). And when Katniss speaks, leaders had better listen.
Some fans were enthused by the new footage.
But at least a few thought the war-heavy footage looked a bit grim.
"Mockingjay Part 1" opens Nov. 21.
