A brand new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 has released. In the trailer, President Snow is back again in another PSA style trailer promising that Panem has never been more unified. Peeta is at his side once more.

The message from Panem reads:

#OnePanem CITIZENS: Never have we been more unified as a nation… The Capitol and the districts are bound together in solidarity, striving to forge a stronger future.
Join esteemed victors Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason in their support of President Snow’s Panem Address, “Unity,” brought to you by Capitol TV in stunning 4K.

However, is it really unity when surrounded by soldiers? Not to mention the appearance of District 13 who pirates the transmission and interrupts the broadcast? “This is a pirate transmission from District 13. The message: The Mockingjay lives.”

Part one sees Katniss in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta and a nation moved by her courage.

We finally have the first trailer for the upcoming third film installment in the Hunger Games franchise. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 has release a trailer in the form of a PSA from Panem and President Snow.

The PSA shows President Snow in a perfectly white background as he promises peace and unity. Though he hints that those who resist may be presents with a future that is not so peaceful. And just as he’s warning, “If you resist the system, you starve yourself. If you fight against it, it is you who will bleed,” the camera pans to reveal Peeta beside him. Blurgh.

hunger-games-catching-fire

This should be no surprise, but Lionsgate has announced that “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” has sold 3.9 million DVD’s and Blu-ray copies in its first weekend of its North American release. This is the biggest digital launch in the company’s history with opening weekend sales.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has grossed $424 million at the North American theatrical box office, the 10th highest-grossing domestic release of all time, marking the first time that the first two installments of a franchise grossed more than $400 million at the domestic box office. The next two “Hunger Games” films, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Parts 1 & 2, will be released on November 21, 2014 and November 20, 2015, respectively.

“This is a monster opening and a tremendous result for the second film in a franchise, underscoring the enormous momentum of ‘The Hunger Games’ films,” said Ron Schwartz, Lionsgate President and General Manager of Home Entertainment Sales & Distribution. “Opening weekend packaged media sales of ‘Catching Fire’ were comparable to the first ‘Hunger Games’ title released nearly two years ago while digital sales grew by nearly 40%. With strong increases in digital revenue and Blu-Ray accounting for 50% of packaged media sales, the opening weekend performance is driving significant margin growth and is a testament to the strength of the franchise.”

Jim Packer, Lionsgate President of Worldwide Television & Digital Distribution, said,

“We opened ‘Catching Fire’ on nearly 20 digital platforms, including six that have launched since the home entertainment debut of the first ‘Hunger Games’ film in 2012, and it was number one on almost all of them. The broad demographic appeal of ‘The Hunger Games’ franchise uniquely positions it for this surge in digital ownership.”
