Move over Hawkeye. Katniss Evergreen has become the archer who will save the world – at least the world of Panem. In the newest trailer for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I,’ war has begun and we see Katniss stepping up in her role as the Mockingjay.
From the very start, we knew that Katniss was reluctant to lead the rebellion. As she tells President Snow in the opening of the trailer, “I never wanted any of this. I never wanted to be in the Games. I just wanted to save my sister. And keep Peeta alive.” But as President Snow clearly explains “Miss Everdeen, it’s the things we love most that destroy us.” President Snow seems to know quite a bit about this as we see that Peeta has now become the spokesperson for the Capitol imploring the Rebels to lay down their weapons. And thus sets the tone and conflict that we’ll see in the third installment of ‘The Hunger Games’ films.
The trailer sends chills with the views of war torn Panem, the glimpses of battles between the Rebels and the Capitol’s men, and Katniss taking aim at a fighter plane with her bow and arrow. And through it all, there is a sense of mistrust and intrigue as no one really is who they seem to be.
This is the penultimate movie in the film franchise and it promises not to disappoint both the fans of the book series and films.
