A Public Address from Panem’s President

By  June 25, 2014

President Snow will not take the resistance lightly!

The first trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 hit the Capitol’s website this morning as a public address to the dystopia’s citizens. The villainous head of Panem is featured outright threatening the rebellion brewing in District 13. Peeta, who was captured at the end of Catching Fire, silently stands next to the president as he intimidates Katniss, who became the poster child of the movement.

The new clip comes on the heels of a propaganda poster series Lionsgate released last week, which celebrates the districts in the form of a high fashion editorial, Capitol Couture. Both the clip and the spread push forth the Captiol’s agenda to restore order and suppress the rebellion until it’s eliminated. We’ll have to wait and see how Katniss fares when the film hits theaters later this year. Whatever goes down, it’s sure to be explosive!
