‘Since the dark days, our great nation has known only peace…‘
Those are the words of President Snow.
In the brand new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 we see a broadcast from Capitol TV. President Snow and his new bitch Peeta are dressed all in white. Peeta stands and listens as President Snow promises unity, prosperity and protection. However, the happy jolly broadcast soon turns sour as President Snow asks for Sacrifice.
In his own words: ‘Your hard work feeds us, and in return we feed and protect you. But if you resist the system, you starve yourself. If you fight against it, it is you who will bleed. I know you will stand with me, with us, with all of us. Together as One.’
There is only One Panem. What we’ve learnt from this trailer, or, if you will, broadcast, is President Snow is in charge. Follow his rules and you will be ‘protected’. Don’t, and you will be dealt with.
