The new trailer for the final chapter of the epic quadrilogy ( it's supposed to be a trilogy but movie studios broke up the final instalment of the book while adapting it for the screen) is out and makes you wonder if it's the trailer for the first movie.

The trailer shows the rebellion's final all-out assault on President Snow, who has rigged the entire city, where he's holed up, as a Hunger Game arena where every corner and every block hides mortal danger.

Snow says creepy dialogues like, "I've been watching you, and you've been watching me." And it seems the filmmakers focussed a bit too much on Katniss' apparel and makeup right for the final fight, which makes the character look absurd. The trailer, with its familiar action set pieces and call for rebellion, leaves you, pardon the pun, hungry for more.

Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, a Hunger Games double champion, has still not run out of arrows. Woody Harrelson's Haymitch, friend, philosopher and coach, comes back too, but looks like he doesn't want to be there.

Philip Seymour Hoffman, one of the greatest American actors of our generation, makes his last appearance in a film as Plutarch Heavensbee, the gamemaker. The character actor, passed away in February, 2014.

Josh Hutcherson's Peeta and Liam Hemsworth's Gale come back too to maintain the love triangle aspect going on with Katniss. Yes, all of them are coming back and none of them made a strong impression in the trailer.

The film also stars Donald Sutherland, Julianne Moore, Sam Claflin, Elizabeth Banks, Jena Malone, Jeffrey Wright, and Stanley Tucci.
