Mockingjay fans rave on the social media Twitter right after Lionsgate debuted The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 trailer at the Comic Conference 2014 in San Francisco, California. And it looks like Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) is ready for her battle against President Snow (played by Donald Sutherland) and the Capitol.
(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.
The minute-long trailer was also uploaded to YouTube and has amassed over 3.9 million views and over 47,000 likes in just two days which just shows how eager are the fans to watch the actual movie.
At the start of the trailer, Plutarch Heavensbee (played by Philip Seymour Hoffman), Beetee Latier (played by Jeffrey Wright), and President Alma Coin (played by Julianne Moore) are seen inside a room debating Katniss Everdeen's capability to lead the mass rebellion despite the damage she got during the 74th Annual Hunger Games and the Quarter Quell.
"No else can do this but her," Plutarch Heavensbee stated. But President Alma Coin stated that Katniss Everdeen will not be able to handle it for the games destroyed her. Beetee Latier stated that they need to unite the people at the realm and Everdeen is the face of that the people followed.
Katniss Everdeen is seen walking amidst the mass of people at District 13 who fixed their eyes on her. The Mockingjay symbol wears an outfit which is ready for combat, arrows lodged safely behind her back. Some of the people stood up and followed their leader which just showed how powerful is Everdeen's mass appeal.
At the Capitol, President Snow is furious at what happened during the Quarter Quell and at the same time he threatened with Katness Everdeen. He forbids his men to have any association with the mockingjay symbol.
Towards the end of the clip, a young rebel asked Katniss Everdeen if she is fighting. The young rebel stated that Everdeen should have fight with them.
To this, Katniss Everdeen replied: "I am, I will."
At the sight of the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 trailer, fans excitedly rave on Twitter. One user @authorlindsayc posted: "dying because #MockingjayTrailer."
