‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ PSA-Style First Trailer Is Creepy and Cool

'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' PSA-Style First Trailer Is Creepy and Cool

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” (now there’s a title for you) has released its first teaser, and it’s fun and a little cheeky and also completely creepy.

In the all-white public service announcement-esque trailer, President Snow shares a message from the Capitol with the rest of Panem, with Josh Hutcherson’s Peeta (who, you might recall, was kidnapped at the end of “Catching Fire”) standing by obediently.  

Donald Sutherland completely nails it as President Coriolanus Snow (as he’s done in the first two movies as well), almost blithely delivering lines like, “If you resist the system, you starve yourself. If you fight against it, it is you who will bleed.”

Take a look at the full teaser below.  I, for one, particularly like Peeta’s eerie, robotic head turn at the very end.
