Following the huge success of The Hunger Games novels, it was now real surprise when it was announced that the hit novels were being adapted for the big screen. Fortunately, the first The Hunger Games movie was a huge success, raking in $693m worldwide, while the sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire managed to gross $829m worldwide.
Later this year we will get to see the third instalment of the franchise, when The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is released and it will be interesting to see how it fares at the box office. With the movie getting ever closer, a new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 teaser trailer has been released, which shows Donald Sutherland in his role as President Snow.
As well as starring Donald Sutherland, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 will also star Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, and Stanley Tucci. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is directed by Francis Lawrence, based on the screenplay developed by Peter Craig and Danny Strong from the Suzanne Collins novel.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 will hit the big screen on November 21 in both the US and the UK. Since we still have a few more months to wait, there will no doubt be plenty more of teasers and trailers to come but, for now, why not take a look at Donald Sutherland as President Snow in the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 teaser trailer, below.
