If you thought the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer was hot, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 trailer is a scorcher.
The one-minute first look was first unveiled at Comic-Con this year and features all our favorite characters as well as some fiery action.
Most notably, the teaser shows the late Philip Seymour Hoffman in his role as Plutarch Heavensbee. Hoffman was able to complete the majority of his scenes for Mockingjay before his death but, according to Us Weekly, will be digitally recreated for a few key scenes in Mockingjay — Part 2, due out in 2015.
“Listen to me. No one else can do this but her,” Hoffman’s Heavensbee says of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence).
We also get a first look at Julianne Moore as President Alma Coin and Natalie Dormer with a partially shaved head as Cressida.

One key character we didn’t see in this trailer is Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). No spoilers, but if you’ve read the books you know why. We can’t wait to see how Hutcherson handles his character’s arc in the final films.
Part 1 will pick up where the last film, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, left off. Katniss has escaped the Third Quarter Quell, becoming a reluctant hero and symbol of hope for the nation of Panem, which is on the verge of civil war.
“Are you fighting, Katniss? Are you here to fight with us?” a rebel asks.
Katniss replies, “I am. I will.”
The trailer ends, of course, with the trademark whistle and the mockingjay symbol in a blaze of fire.
Watch the full trailer below.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 will be released Nov. 21, 2014.
