President Snow addresses Panem in 'Mockingjay' teaser -- with a surprise guest

“Since the dark days, our great nation has known only peace. Ours is an elegant system, conceived to nourish and protect,” Panem’s benevolent leader says smoothly as words like “unity” and “prosperity” appear on an all-white background. “Your districts are the body. The capital is the beating heart. Your hard work feeds us, and in return, we feed and protect you.”

Then the president’s latest propaganda video takes a turn. “But if you resist the system, you starve yourself,” Snow says, his tone a touch more sinister. “If you fight against it, it is you who will bleed.” Slowly, the camera pulls back to reveal that Snow’s not alone. He’s perched on a gleaming white throne—next to none other than kidnapped Hunger Games victor Peeta Mellark, stoically gazing off into the distance.

Shiver. The first official teaser for this fall’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 skillfully captures the mood of Suzanne Collins’s final Hunger Games book (which is bleaker, darker, and more Capitol-focused) despite containing zero footage from the upcoming movie. The wait for the new film may stretch on for months—but who can really complain, if Lionsgate uses that time to keep releasing ace promotional material like this teaser and yesterday’s stylish, district-focused posters?
