Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′ clip teases Gale, Peeta rivalry

34

A new teaser for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1″ hints at the growing animosity between the men in Katniss Everdeen’s life.

The 30-second video clip, released Tuesday, depicts Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), her childhood friend turned potential romantic interest, in District 13 surrounded by weapons as the rebels prepare to make war against Panem’s oppressive regime, helmed by President Snow (Donald Sutherland).
But Snow seems to have his own weapon — the captured Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). Peeta, of course, is Katniss’ other potential lover and her partner in the Hunger Games arena, where the pair twice fought in televised battles to the death (in the box office blockbusters “The Hunger Games” and “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”) aimed at keeping Panem’s people in line.


“Everyone needs to lay down their weapons immediately,” Peeta says in what appears to be a public service announcement from the Capitol.
The announcement lets Katniss know he survived after he was left in the arena while she was whisked out by the resistance movement at the end of the second film, but Peeta’s demands draw
Gale’s ire.
“Everyone has a choice, Katniss, and I’d rather die than say what he just said,” Gale tells her angrily.
