Be still, our hearts. Literally. The first official stills from “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” have been released, and they have us feeling a lot of feelings, but mostly we feel excited.
The countdown to November 21 is on, and we’ll be obnoxiously whistling the Mockingjay call until then. We’re still waiting on official pics of Katniss, Peeta, Gale and the gang (sneaky set photos aren’t quite the same as seeing the characters in action), but today brought us our first look at Julianne Moore’s President Alma Coin (and her alluring dye job) and Mahershala Ali as Coin’s right hand man turned Katniss’ personal security detail.
Let’s also give a hearty welcome back to Jeffrey Wright (Beetee), Woody Harrelson (Haymitch) and, of course, Philip Seymour Hoffman (Plutarch Heavensbee) in his final role.
Check out the pics below, then raise your hand in a solemn three-finger salute and count down the days til November.
