Because Jennifer Lawrence is Jennifer Lawrence, she manages to sell The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 with just her face by the end of this teaser trailer. Overall, Lionsgate is taking it much slower with the marketing materials this time around, focusing on ‘teasing’ the movie as opposed to releasing anything concrete. By this time last year, we’d already gotten two full-length trailers for Catching Fire, not to mention several posters and promotional material.
In contrast, for Mockingjay, we have two Propaganda videos, one one-sheet poster, and this newly released teaser trailer. What gives, Lionsgate? You made us wait all this time only to release that?
