12 Moments In The First Mockingjay Part 2 Trailer That Prove It ll Be Way Better Than Part 1 Mockingjay2 jpg

So remember how the honest trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 came out a few months back? Well, this is even better than that, because this IS SPARTA is the very first teaser trailer for Mockingjay: Part 2. At long last, we will finally learn whether or not Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) will ever stop talking about Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), how President Snow (Donald Sutherland) manages to keep his hair so nicely coiffed, and whether or not Gale (Liam Hemsworth) will ever really get out of the friend zone.

Okay, so maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit, because anyone who’s ever read the book or has a halfway functioning brain knows that that’s not what Mockingjay is about. We already covered all of President Snow’s propaganda and Katniss’s growing angst in Part 1, and now we’re ready for Part 2: The Battle, a.k.a. the one thing that missing from Part 1 that made it so unbearable to sit through. Seriously, guys, I fell asleep at the end of the movie. That could’ve been because I chose to see it twice and the movie was almost three hours long, but I choose to believe that the lack of fighting was to blame. But I digress, except not really, because this teaser trailer looks INTENSE, y’all, and way better than its predecessor. In fact, here are 12 moments in the teaser that prove just how much better it’s going to be:

1. When it starts with a wedding. Guys, I love weddings! I mean, really, who doesn’t? What makes it even better is that it’s Finnick (Sam Claflin) and Annie’s wedding, and it looks pretty nautical and adorable, so that’s fun.

2. When they’re definitely doing the hora. I’m just saying, it’s not every day that you get to see some nice Jewish traditions in a Hunger Games movie. Besides,

3. When Katniss says, “Snow has to pay for what he’s done.” And I’m like, girl, why did it take all of you so long to come to this conclusion?

4. When Katniss plots while President Snow enjoys a nice sit-down dinner. Because, really, he shouldn’t be enjoying a pleasant meal at a time like this.

5. When we see Katniss and Prim (Willow Shields) dancing together AND I HAD A MINOR BREAKDOWN BECAUSE SPOILER ALERT WE ALL KNOW HOW THIS IS GOING TO END.

6. When there were explosions. I’m a sucker for a good explosion.

7. When Katniss rolled up to the Capitol squad deep and pointed an arrow, presumably, at President Snow. #YAS

8. When Peeta and Katniss hugged it out and I was like, Excuse me, but where is the whole “murderous hi-jacked Peeta” plot at?

9. When there was a title card that flashed, “This is the event the world has been waiting for” and I’m just like, Is it, though? And then I was like, Well, yes. Good talk, self.

10. When President Snow showed off his smoking jacket and I thought, “Well, even though he’s evil, he’s still a pretty snappy dresser.”

11. When black smoke/water/Capitol weaponry stuff started flooding out toward Katniss & Co. AND IT WAS AWESOME.

12, When Finnick welcomed us all to the 76th Hunger Games. Thank you, Finnick. Thank you very much.
