The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Trailer

The Mockingjay – Part 1 trailer begins with a voiceover from Katniss (Jennifer Laawrence) in which she says, “I never wanted any of this. I never wanted to be in the Games. I just wanted to save my sister and keep Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) alive. It’s soon revealed that Katniss is saying this in a video chat to President Snow (Donald Sutherland).

“Miss Everdeen, it’s the things we love most that destroy us,” Snow ominously replies.
