STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Lionsgate has released posters from "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1"
  • There is also an address from "President Snow" (played by Donald Sutherland)
  • The latest film in the hit series is set to hit theaters in November

(CNN) -- Get ready to bow to The Capitol.

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1" is set to hit theaters in November, and on Wednesday, the immense fandom got a taste of what's to come.

Lionsgate has released "propaganda" posters from the forthcoming film, which salute the hero citizens of Panem. Each poster contains a representative from each of the districts dressed to represent their region, along with slogans such as "Panem Today, Panem Tomorrow, Panem Forever."

The studio also released a video of "President Snow's Panem Address," which sees Donald Sutherland as the villainous President Snow delivering a not-so-veiled threat to his nation.

Even the YouTube description for the teaser indicates the kind of place Panem is. "CITIZENS," the description begins, "The Capitol requires your viewing of President Snow's official Panem Address, 'Together As One,' brought to you by Capitol TV in stunning 4K.

"Your districts are the body," Sutherland's Snow says. "The capital is the beating heart. Your hard work feeds us, and in return, we feed and protect you."

He's joined by Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, whom fans know isn't being himself at this point in the story.

The films are based on the wildly successful "Hunger Games" trilogy of young adult novels written by Suzanne Collins. The third and final book, "Mockingjay," has been split into two films. Part 1 is set to be released on November 21.
