Capitol TV Hijacked in Second ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ Preview


Just weeks after Lionsgate dropped the first glimpse at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, a second clip gives us a deeper (and darker) look.

The video opens with a live Capitol TV broadcast from President Snow (Donald Sutherland), with Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna (Jena Malone) standing on either side of him.

“Throughout this great nation, never have we been more unified because now more than ever, Panem is speaking with one voice: The Capitol and the Districts bound together in solidarity …” he begins to explain to his people before it’s hijacked by Beetee (Jeffrey Wright).

“This is the underground,” he says as his image takes over the very stark visual of Snow. “This is a pirate technician from District 13. Repeat, this is a pirate technician from District 13 with a message.” As he leans into the screen, he bellows, “The Mockingjay lives” — and then the signal cuts out.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, which also stars Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth, hits theaters on November 21.
