'Mockingjay' is an adaptation of part of the final book in Suzanne Collins's trilogy.

A new trailer shows that the upcoming “Hunger Games” film, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,” will be pretty action-packed.

“Mockingjay” is based on the novel of the same name by Suzanne Collins, which is the finale in the “Hunger Games” book trilogy. It’s split into two films for the movie adaptation.

Actress Jennifer Lawrence stars at Katniss Everdeen, who is living in a dystopian world and was forced twice to participate in the government’s deadly Hunger Games, in which children (or, in the second iteration, previous champions) are forced to kill one another.

In “Mockingjay,” Katniss is a member of the resistance, but her friend Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) has been taken captive by the government.

In the trailer, Peeta tells her, “They’re coming, Katniss. They’re going to kill everyone. You’ll be dead by morning.”

President Snow (Donald Sutherland) has something to say to her, too: “Miss Everdeen, prepare to pay the ultimate price.” 

Katniss says, “I have a message for President Snow. If we burn, you burn with us." 

“Mockingjay” is coming to theaters on Nov. 21. Check out the full trailer above.
