Lionsgate have today débuted a new video clip (below) from their impending fantasy movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1. Scheduled to blaze into auditoriums across the globe a full twelve months after the franchise's second outing, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Part 1 will introduce newcomers and long-running followers of the dystopian world of Panem to those characters old and new who'll play a pivotal role in the coming war for the fate of all thirteen districts.
Don't go expecting the conflict itself to break out in full force, though, since the clip hints at a more psychological battle between politically corrupted warlords and valiant yet imperfect rebels wherein the citizens who comprise the rest of Panem may, for better or for worse, soon find themselves caught in No Man's Land. First up to the firing line is none other than Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), the courageous freedom fighter who was unlucky enough to remain undiscovered when Haymitch, Plutarch and Alma Coin brought the Quarter Quell to a mercifully premature halt in order to release Katniss (whose reaction to her most loyal ally's sustained imprisonment within the Capital was depicted beautifully by the marvellously talented Jennifer Lawrence, we might add) from the clutches of resident ruthless dictator President Snow. Those who've read the climactic novel by Suzanne Collins will doubtless attest to the inner and physical struggles which Mr. Mallark will have to endure in both Part 1 and Part 2, but that's not to say that surprises aren't on the horizon for those somewhat fortunate - we say "somewhat" as the experience of reading Mockingjay can feel akin to that of watching Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in terms of its severe mishandling of beloved fictitious constructs - individuals; if anything, given the rumours that have been circulating about a potential alteration to the final Hunger Games instalment's denouement, it looks as if the odds are no longer in the all-too-critical original readership's favour.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 sews the seeds of rebellion in UK cinemas nationwide this November 21st.
