The second trailer of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1," which was released on Wednesday, featured President Snow's second address to the citizens of Panem, which does not go as well as he expected.

The second trailer is similar to the first one, with Peeta, played by Josh Hutcherson and another Hunger Games tribute Johanna, played by Jena Malone, flanking Donald Sutherland's President Snow.

"Throughout this great nation, never have we been more unified, because now more than ever, Panem is speaking with one voice," Snow says to the camera. "The Capitol and the Districts, bound together by solidarity. Together..."

Snow is unable to complete his address as it gets interrupted by a message from District 13, the headquarters of the rebellion.

"This is a pirated transmission from District 13 with a message," Beetee, a tribute from District 3, says as he interrupts Snow's address. "The Mockingjay lives."

The Mockingjay refers to Jennifer Lawrence's character of Katniss Everdeen, who became the symbol and face of resistance after her participation in the Hunger Games.

The third instalment in the four-part series focuses on Katniss' attempts to rescue Peeta from President Snow's clutches. Peeta has been brainwashed in captivity, and he believes Katniss is leading a revolution that will only result in more deaths.

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" also focused on Katniss' attempts to avoid becoming a pawn in the games played by power-hungry President Coin, portrayed by Julianne Moore, who is the leader of District 13.

District 13 is basically a bomb shelter that is built hundreds of feet below the surface of the earth so that it can withstand any form of attack or detection. "It's not a place where there's a lot of light, there's not a lot of laughter, there's not a lot of fun," Moore says about the District in a video. "It's people just barely getting by."

The personality of President Coin is not detailed in the book series by Suzanne Collins; it is only shown from Katniss' point of view. But in the movie, Moore has attempted to capture Coin's wholeness as a person.

Throwing light on the character of President Coin, Moore refers to a scene when District 13 gets bombed by the Capitol, and President Coin refuses to retaliate.

"I think that speaks volumes about who she is as a leader," says Moore. "She's not about to risk revealing herself and her population in a fight when she knows they are better served by lying low and letting it blow over."
