The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 Trailer

With just under 5 months to go until the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, like many of you, we’ve all been eagerly devouring any and all information we could get our hands on, and at last, it’s arrived: the first official trailer.

If this doesn’t get you amped for Novemeber 21st, then nothing will…and in that case, “May the odds be ever in your favor.”
