The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1has debuted its first teaser trailer at Comic-Con, seeing Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) appoint Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) as the leader of an uprising.

Katniss only features very briefly at the one-minute teaser's finish, promising to fight President Snow's dictatorship as she walks though the impoverished District 8.

The trailer gives glimpses of woodland battles, explosions in the Capitol and a Mockingjay crop circle, also offering the first look at Games of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer's character, Cressida.

Snow issues a ban on the Mockingjay logo in the clip, which has come to be a symbol of rebellion.


The trailer premiered at a preview at the San Diego convention on Friday, in a promotional tie-in with Samsung.

Fans who wanted to be among the first to see the teaser had to queue up before entering a Mockingjay pavilion, then being led to white pods where they could watch it on a Samsung tablet. Very Capitol.

The trailer follows a rebellion poster, living portraits of Johanna and Peeta and two speeches from President Snow, with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 set to open in cinemas on November 21, 2014.
