UPDATE 2: The Russian distributor Volga have announced on Twitter that the trailer will be posted online “on the morning of July 28 [Moscow time]“, and followed it up with “after 8am Moscow time”. 8am Moscow time translates to:
21:00 Pacific (Sunday)/00:00 Eastern/05:00 BST on Monday, July 28.
So fans, mark your calendars and set your alarms as this is when the trailer should be released online internationally.
US fans who want to see the trailer before the aforementioned online release – a list of Best Buy stores participating in screening the trailer on the 26th and 27th July is available here.
UPDATE: Lionsgate have officially announced that Natalie Dormer, Elden Henson, Mahershala Ali, Evan Ross & Wes Chatham will be attending SDCC to sign autographs. Cast attending the trailer premiere event at the Hard Rock hotel is still to be confirmed.
We’d also like to remind everyone that unfortunately Samsung/Best Buy’s exclusive US rights to the trailer until SDCC is over mean that fans from other countries will not be able to see the trailer until it is released online following that weekend. It is currently unknown when the trailer will make its online debut but we believe it may be early the following week, with a theatrical debut likely in front ofGuardians of the Galaxy on August 1.
The wait is finally over.
After two fantastic teaser trailers, Lionsgate in partnership with Samsung Mobile have announced that the long-awaited theatrical trailer for Mockingjay – Part 1 will have its world premiere on Friday July 25at San-Diego Comic-Con. Unlike last year this premiere will not be in the form of a panel, but the cast will be in San Diego to introduce the trailer at 12:00 PT that day in the Capitol Gallery located in the Samsung Galaxy Experience in San Diego (in the Hard Rock Hotel, corner of 5th and L Streets).
In a first-of-its-kind experience, fans will have the opportunity to preview the highly-anticipated The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 trailer on the Galaxy Tab S at an exclusive premiere in San Diego during Comic-Con on Friday, July 25. [...] “We’re giving our consumers the unique experience to premiere the official trailer of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I on our new Galaxy Tab S,” said Todd Pendleton, Chief Marketing Officer, Samsung Telecommunications America. “Together with Lionsgate, we will give Samsung Galaxy owners access to experience The Hunger Games franchise like never before.”
