This is it folks! Just what we wanted. The final and only full length trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, and frankly I could live off of it for the rest of my life because the movie just might kill me. Amiright?! No silly little teaser for us, friends, we are in the big leagues now.
In this 1 minute and 47 seconds, we are walked through Katniss' new world after the games in District 13 by the Mockingjay herself. The trailer opens with Katniss' heart-wrenching words "I never wanted any of this, I never wanted to be in the games. I just wanted to save my sister, and keep Peeta alive," to which the great and powerful President Snow replies "Miss Everdeen, it's the things we love most that destroy us."
DEAD. I AM DEAD, but alive enough to break it down into Fangirl sobs below:
The "OMG THAT'S KATNISS BUT I NEED TO KEEP IT COOL" Sob: You know, the one you tried to hold in the minute the Lionsgate Logo flashed on the screen and you hear Katniss' voice, the one that you last heard a hundred years ago when Catching Fire came out. "I never wanted any of this...." J-Law's voice echoes deep in your soul. Oh good Lord, keep yourself together! We are 2 seconds in, and I'm already losing it.
The "Katniss and Prim. Katniss. and. Prim" Sob: I'm not really sure what to say about this part of the trailer. Mostly because I can't get any words out, only tears. This part of the trailer will leave you in the kind of heartache you would not wish on your worst enemy. I just wish everything could be ok.
The "Effie Just Shattered My Heart Into a Million Fangirl Pieces" Sob: I was doing ok, attempting to hold it together after that Prim thing, taking it all in. Until Effie had to show up on my friggin' screen without her signature glam, but in District 13 attire and no makeup, looking hopeless, pinning the Mockingjay pin on Katniss like Cinna used to do. LIKE WTF?! I can't deal, and I don't want to. GIVE INTO THE PAIN!
The "Gale Has Changed" Sob: Gale has been working side by side with Beetee to create weapons to rival The Capitol's in battle, he's changed a little and will change even more. They developed a super advanced and destructive bow just for Katniss. It basically can blow your house up in one shot. Seeing Gale shooting it, becoming the Gale we have all been dreading he will soon become...cheese and rice, I just want everyone to be ok!
The "OMFG IT'S PEETA!" Sob: This is the sob that leaves you unable to speak, breathe or function. Just the sight of Peeta on that screen, telling the rebels to give up is tear inducing. Then you see his face and the pain in his eyes! HE'S ALIVE! When Katniss realizes it with a desperate hope in her voice, oh man, it wrecks you. YES KATNISS! SAVE HIM! BRING PEETA BACK!
The "Katniss Mad, Me Mad!" Sob: Yes Katniss, yes! When Katniss demands President Coin and Plutarch rescue Peeta from The Capitol immediately or they can find another Mockingjay, holy heck! If my tears could fist bump eachother, they would.
The "Finnick. Oh My Gosh, Finnick. FINNICK!" Sob: Just the sight of his face and his sad eyes looking at Katniss. Remembering his words, “It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.” aaannnddd I'm done for. Officially not surviving this movie. No chance.
The "Katniss is Crying and Things Are Blowing Up Nothing Will Ever be Ok Again" Sob: The war. It's everywhere, bombs, fire, devastation. Gale holds Katniss back as she fights to run into the warzone, her eyes full of tears. Haymitch takes Katniss into his arms, more bombs... we never wanted any of this either Katniss!
The "Katniss is Crying Again, but in the Rain Which Makes Me Cry Harder" Sob: Katniss crying. In the rain. Looking Hopeless and desperate. NOBODY MAKES KATNISS CRY! NO ONE! NOBODY!
The "Take That You !?hvu%jhbj&vjhv!ut#kjgi2h[email protected]!" Sob: Katniss and Gale watch as two Capitol hovercrafts fly towards them, Katniss raises her bow of death and shoots! BAM! The arrow explodes the hovercraft into flames, knocking out the other in it's fiery path. It's our one moment of revenge in the whole trailer, our single moment where we see that Katniss may actually be able to to do this. That the Mockingjay does live. That we may survive after all.
And finally the "Welp I Don't Even Know What Life is Anymore & Now I'm Drunk" Sob: The only medicine for such an emotional roller-coaster is wine. So drink up! Straight through until November, people. I know I will be drinking (lots) and saying my goodbyes (seriously this movie is going to kill me). The Mockingjay lives my friends, but I will not.
