The short new teaser for the next Hunger Games movie starts out much like the last one, with a message from President Snow, who’s now joined by Jena Malone’s Johanna Mason. But this time there’s a twist: an interruption from Beetee (Jeffrey Wright), who has apparently hacked into the broadcast.
It’s not clear yet how much of this footage will actually appear in Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (out this November), but it helps set up the next chapter, and it’s an effective bit of hype.
