The excitable hive of Hunger Games fanatics is abuzz with the latest news that the first trailer for Mockingjay - Part 1 could hit screens in April, or even sooner!

Yahoo! started the rumor mill churning by claiming that a Tumblr affiliated with the production of the Mockingjay movies let slip that the first trailer would arrive in April. Unfortunately, Yahoo!'s international movie site is yet to put its money where its mouth is and it has stopped short of sharing any evidence.

Despite the lack of proof, it is incredibly plausible that this is when Mockingjay will spread its wings and debut its trailer. Last year the trailer for Catching Fire (which also had a November release date) premiered in April during the MTV Movie Awards.

Butn the impatient among us might have reason to celebrate sooner than we think. It seems highly likely that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 trailer will be linked with the release of Divergent on March 21st 2014.

The films both share a stark dystopian theme and are aimed at the young adult audience, so it is not an enormous leap of faith to imagine The Hunger Games crew wanting to target this captive audience.

Personally, I am betting on a the Mockingjay - Part 1 trailer making its debut with Divergent. The two franchises have close ties that are mutually beneficial, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire DVD will already feature a sneak peek of Divergent.

You scratch my back and I scratch yours!

Are you guys super psyched for the trailer no matter when it hits the silver screen?
