Never fear, Hunger Games fans—Jennifer Lawrence is here to save the day.
The actress, 23, stars in the intense new teaser trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which made its debut at Comic-Con in San Diego, Calif., this past weekend.
Following two earlier sneak peeks at the upcoming film, the latest clip sets the scene for the impending revolution and the role of Lawrence’s character Katniss in the uprising. The teaser opens with the late Philip Seymour Hoffman in character as Plutarch Heavensbee, speaking in a meeting with President Alma Coin (Julianne Moore).
“Listen to me,” Heavensbee says. “No one else can do this but her.”
“She won’t be able to handle it,” President Coin counters about Katniss. “The games destroyed her.”
Said games were depicted in the previous installment, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which hit theaters in November 2013. In the upcoming film, Katniss must rise to the occasion to lead the rebellion after all she has been through.
The late Hoffman plays an integral role in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, one of his final films before his untimely death on Feb. 2. The celebrated actor passed away at the age of 46 after filming his scenes for the latest Hunger Games installment, which is scheduled to arrive in theaters in November. He will also appear in the final Part 2 film, due out in 2015.
Hoffman was mourned by The Hunger Games cast and crew at the time of his death. “Words cannot convey the devastating loss we are all feeling right now,” the Hunger Games team said in a statement. “Philip was a wonderful person and an exceptional talent, and our hearts are breaking. Our deepest condolences go out to his family.”
