Watch the first teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1

Katniss Everdeen is nowhere to be found in the first teaser for part 1 of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. Instead, we get an eyeful of the Capitol's President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and his silvery beard. He's flanked by a silent Peeta Mellark.

The trailer is a PSA in disguise, and fans will know that the telltale orchestral swell of the brass in The Hunger Games can only mean one thing: some major propaganda is on its way. President Snow doesn't disappoint, still managing to appear ominous while wearing a furry all-white coat. --Sarah Turbin
