War is hell, and Katniss Everdeen is right in the middle of it.

After a series of propaganda videos and a teaser trailer made for Comic-Con audiences, we’ve got our first look at the full-length trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. If the last film’s escape from the Hunger Games arena wasn’t an indicator, Panem is now in full-out war.

While the first two movies in the series spent most of their time in the arena, Katniss, who’s only seen for a few fleeting seconds thus far, is front and center. But as she battles her enemies and inner demons, the Capitol holds its own weapon against her in the form of a familiar face, and it knows how to use him.

There’s plenty of footage for fans to feast their eyes on in the trailer, with glimpses of Gale, Prim, Plutarch Heavensbee, and new characters played by Julianne Moore and Natalie Dormer. But with everything in chaos, it’s still not clear where exactly the split between Part 1 and Part 2 of the movies will happen. What we do know is the wait won’t be easy.
