The excitement continues to fire up for Hunger Games fans as Lionsgate released President Snow's Panem Address "Together As One" for the upcoming "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1."
(L-R) Cast members Liam Hemsworth, Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson pose during a photocall for the film "The Hunger Games : Mockingjay - Part 1" at the 67th Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, May 17, 2014.
In just two days after the video was uploaded to YouTube, it already generated over six million views and over 33,000 likes which just signifies the fans' anticipation for the movie to hit the big screen.
In the 1.12-minute long video, President Snow (played by Donald Sutherland) was dressed in all white sitting on the Capitol's chair.
"Since the dark days, our great nation has known only these. Ours is an elegant system conceived to nourish and protect. Your districts are the body, the Capitol is the beating heart," President Snow stated. The President added that the people's hard work means cash and in return the Capitol will feed and protect them.
President Snow also delivered strong words to those who resist the system of the Capitol. "Starve yourself. If you fight against it, it is you who will bleed," he stated.
"I know you will stand with me, with us, with all of us. Together as one," he added. "Panem today. Panem tomorrow. Panem forever," the President concluded.
According to the note on the video, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" finds the hero Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally smashes the game forever. In the underground district, Katniss spreads her wings to save the other hero Peeta (played by Josh Hutcherson) who was under the hands of President Snow in the Capitol. Katniss is under the leadership of District 13 President Coin (played by Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends.
To make the fire of Hunger Games fans burn even more, Lionsgate also released several propaganda-like posters which showed the collection of heroes from all the other 12 districts in the city of Panem. Both Katniss and Peeta are noticeably absent from the set of haunting posters recently released.
"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" is directed by Francis Lawrence. It is expected to hit the cinemas on Nov. 21, 2014. Until then, fans just have to be content with the posters and President Snow's Panem Address.
