The second-to-last Hunger Games movie, Mockingjay — Part I, got its first full-length trailer today. As you might already know, they’re milking Hunger Games for all it’s worth, splitting the final book into two movies, à la Harry Potter. And while the final book was the least liked by many fans, this trailer looks pretty impressive. You’ve got the standard hints to who’s involved (Cressida! Finnick! Effie!

We almost went extinct fighting one another before. Now our numbers are even fewer. Our conditions more tenuous. Is this really what we want to do? Kill ourselves off completely? In the hopes that — what? Some decent species will inherit the smoking remains of the earth?”
And in case you were wondering (well, we were!), Finnick will be there:
One lingering question remains: What is this damlike structure, and why is it exploding?
