The trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 just dropped today. It gives us a bit of a rundown of what we’ll see in Part 1, while not giving too much away if you’ve not read the book (but really… If you haven’t, there’s plenty of time before November 21st). You can check all three titles out from your favorite BCPL branch by simply clicking here.

I dare you to not whistle while looking at that.
