At more than 2-minutes long, the sneak peek at one of the year’s most anticipated sequels – which iwon’t be out until Nov. 22 – is jam-packed with exciting footage.
“She just wants to save her skin, simple as that,” says President Snow, played by Donald Sutherland. “She has become a beacon of hope to them. She has to be eliminated.”

Woody Harrelson, who plays Haymitch Abernath, and Elizabeth Banks, as kooky Effie Trinket, make an appearance. And so does bold Gale Hawthorne, played by Liam Hemsworth, and Katniss’s sister, Primrose, played by Willow Sheilds.
“Every revolution begins with a spark” flashes across the screen before Snow calls for the eradication of all the victors. “Because of her,” he says, “they all pose a threat. Because of her, they all think they’re invincible.”
