SAN DIEGO (AP) — The trailer for the next film in the popular "Hunger Games" series is making its premiere at Comic-Con.

Fans were invited to the Capitol Gallery in downtown San Diego on Friday, where hologram versions of Katniss and Peta offered visitors a silent welcome before the minute-long teaser trailer was shown.

The trailer opens with a hovership landing, and a meeting between leaders of the rebellion, where Phillip Seymour Hoffman and a gray-haired Julianne Moore discuss Katniss' role. Meanwhile, President Snow, played by Donald Sutherland, declares the Mockingjay symbol illegal.

Jennifer Lawrence, as Katniss, is shown entering the underground bunker where refugees of Panem are hiding, and she agrees to take up their cause.

The trailer will be released at Best Buy stores Saturday and widely next week.
