The new teaser for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” is out, showing how Katniss Everdeen reluctantly finds herself the symbol of rebellion in the world of Panem, and the target of ruthless President Snow.

The clip for the new film, due out in November, opens with a conversation between former games maker Plutarch Heavensbee (the late Philip Seymour Hoffman) and Julianne Moore’s Alma Coin discussing how Katniss (played again by Jennifer Lawrence) is the only person capable of uniting a downtrodden populace terrorized by Donald Sutherland’s Snow.

The film arrives as the third installment in the “Hunger Games” franchise, adapted from Suzanne Collins’ bestselling post-apocalyptic novels. The movies have been box-office giants, with last year’s “Catching Fire” earning more than $854 million worldwide, and they’ve helped transform Lawrence into an international superstar.

Francis Lawrence (no relation), who directed “Catching Fire,” is set to return for the two-part adaptation of the final book in Collins’ trilogy. “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” is set for release in 2015.
