Comic-Con attendees got the first look at the new Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 trailer on Thursday, and while it hasn’t been shared with the general public yet, Lionsgate did release a new promo. It’s not quite the same, but it’ll have to do. The short video reminds us of the epic battle still to come in the conclusion of the film series adapted from Suzanne Collins’ best-selling book trilogy.
In the promo, District 13 soldiers show off their weaponry and training with their perfectly in sync drill team choreography. In case you weren’t sure that they’re the good guys, the clip has District 13 fighters clad in all-white uniforms. The choice in color wouldn’t be very practical in real life, but it’s symbolic. (Ironically, in the movies, the Capitol soldiers are the ones that wear white.)
Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) also makes an appearance in the promo, and her outfit is even more impractical. She’s dressed in red from head-to-toe, which seems like the worst possible color a soldier could wear. The last thing you’d want to do during a battle is stand out. Luckily, she also dons black with District 13’s freedom fighters in the actual movie. She may be the Girl on Fire, but she’s not stupid — she did twice survive President Snow’s diabolical Hunger Games, after all.
Comic-Con’s Hunger Games panel featured the franchise’s stars, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson (Peeta), Liam Hemsworth (Gale), and Willow Shields (Prim), as well as director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson. As for the series’ impending end, the film’s director gave reassurances that it will be satisfying, at least for those who enjoyed how the books ended.
