New Mockingjay Pt 2 Clip Welcomes You to the 76th Hunger Games
The fast-approaching Mockingjay pt 2 sees Katniss et al attempt to overthrow the Capitol once and for all, but in order to do that, they need to navigate a dystopian maze that's just as perilous as the Hunger Games, but with much higher stakes:


 
In this clip, President Coin's right-hand man, Boggs, explains that Katniss, Gale, Finnick, and the others will be the "faces of the rebellion," which means they will be on camera to rally the troops but won't actually be part of the battle. (Katniss, to her credit, looks incredibly uncomfortable with this.) He tells them that they'll still be in a war zone, and that they'll have to play one last "game," as Snow has booby trapped the entire area with Hunger Games-like challenges, including "mutts." In the Hunger Games mythology, "mutts" simply refers to mutated animals, which includes innocuous ones like Mockingjay. But from his tone, we can probably assume he's referring to the wolf mutts from the first film, the ridiculous CGI demon dogs that are supposed to look like the children who died in the arena.

"Welcome to the 76th Hunger Games," Finnick says wryly.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Julianne Moore, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Natalie Dormer, Mahershala Ali, Gwendoline Christie, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Donald Sutherland, and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman in his final film role.
