At long last, the moment has arrived — a trailer for Mockingjay Part I has finally been released. (At San Diego Comic Con, just like we were hoping!) And you guys, it’s a doozy. It may only be a minute long, but not a single one of those sixty seconds is wasted, and I defy you to get all the way through it without tearing up.
Up until now, we’d been making do with the little vignettes they’d been releasing from Capitol TV (which you can check out here and here in case you missed them), but let’s be honest, it’s nice to get a real look at the plot of the movie this time, even if it is still just a teaser trailer. (Hey, it’s better than a teaser GIF, which is what we were getting for Catching Fire this time last year.)
Anyway, it’s just a wee nugget of trailer, but it packs a serious punch, and the place you’re gonna feel it most is right in your tear ducts. Here are the ten moments most likely to hit you right in your feels.
- The trailer got me right off the bat, because I keep forgetting that Phillip Seymour Hoffman has more films coming out, even though his tragic death was almost six months ago. It’s a gut-punch every time.
- Katniss’ silhouette walking through the barracks in District 13 was eerily beautiful.
- Julianne Moore as Coin delivering that incredible line — “She won’t be able to handle it. The games destroyed her.”
- Seeing Natalie Dorner with tears in her eyes as Katniss passes.
- The concern on Gale’s face as he kneels down into frame. Fingers crossed that Liam Hemsworth never talks ever in this movie, and instead spends his time just smoldering at the camera.
- The explosion shown in the visor of the Peacekeeper.
- The people running up the trees as others running on the ground fall.
- The way Jennifer Lawrence‘s voice cracks on the line “I am.” when she’s still offscreen…
- …and how it gets stronger for, “I will,” as we get our first shot of her.
- And that old Hunger Games whistle at the end of the trailer. Always manages to get me emotional, for some reason.
GAHHHHH. I’m a total wimp, but whatever, at least I own it. Mockingjay Part I will be released November 21st, 2014. BE THERE.
