After two messages from President Snow, here is the first teaser for the next Hunger Games that takes us away from the propaganda and into the rebellion. Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Plutarch Heavensbee opens the teaser (Hoffman had mostly finished filming for the series prior to his death) and we also get our first glimpses of Julianne Moore as Alma Coin and Natalie Dormer (complete with half-shaved head) as Cressida.
It’s brief (just over a minute), but it’s still our longest look yet at the penultimate chapter in the blockbuster franchise. Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is out Nov. 21.
