Video: The Mockingjay teasers have begun


Since today has been refreshingly Star Wars news free thus far (which is fine, because yesterday was nuts) have this Mockingjay promo – err, address from President Snow. And friends.

And, since we’re on the subject, here’s the previous transmission:


The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 will be in theaters January 16.

Video: First teaser for The Empire Strikes Back

Last Wednesday @StarWars posted the first-ever trailer for Star Wars; today they posted the first teaser for The Empire Strikes Back, mostly composed of Ralph McQuarrie’s concept art.

Is it a sign? Maybe, maybe not. Furious Fanboys points out there’s only one Wednesday (for Revenge/Return of the Jedi?) between us and October 30th, aka the one-year mark of the original Disney sale/sequel trilogy announcement.

Teaser: Star Trek Into Darkness

Yeah, it took me a few seconds to realize that it isn’t Patrick Stewart monologuing the voiceover, too. (Doesn’t sound like Benedict Cumberbatch, either… Does it?)

Another ‘teaser’ trailer will apparently be coming along on the 17th, because that’s just how the industry rolls these days. (Sigh)
