I'm not going to try to explain everything that is going on in the first official trailer for Mockingjay – Part 1. For starters, it's just too hard explain this dystopian future in the limited space I have here. And more importantly, I don't want to ruin anything for people who have not seen (or read) the previous two instalments in the Hunger Games franchise, because I have a hunch that, after they've seen this trailer, they will want to watch the first two movies.

What I will say is that, given how Catching Fire raked in a whopping $864.6 million worldwide with just a $140 million budget, I'm surprised Lionsgate is only splitting the third and final book of the original trilogy into two parts. It's so unambitious. If it were me, I'd put Zeno's dichotomy paradox to the test and keep dividing the last instalment in half, stretching it out forever.

Then again, maybe Lionsgate is just hoping Suzanne Collins will eventually add to the Hunger Games universe. Everybody loves a good prequel, right?

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 hits theaters November 21, 2014.
