A teaser trailer for 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1' has been released. Philip Seymour Hoffman died during the filming of the movie, but according to director Francis Lawrence it hasn't affected the production. SOUNDBITE: director Francis Lawrence, saying (English): "He had about 8 days left but the meat of his performance was already finished. So there were a couple of scenes that were pretty substantial which we ended up giving to other actors to take over and obviously although no-one is a replacement for Phil, the story still works." However, the real danger to the production was actually the actors' inability to stop laughing during scenes. SOUNDBITE: actor Josh Hutcherson, saying (English): "It's crazy how we finish the movies. I don't understand. It's just noise, craziness, laughing, laughing, and then 'action' and then even a few seconds after that we're still laughing and then 'oh crap we've got to go' and then you turn it on and get into the scene. Honestly we're less focussed more of the time and only focussed between action and cut and that's it." And for Jennifer Lawrence who plays the lead Katniss, there were further challenges. SOUNDBITE: actress Jennifer Lawrence, saying (English): "I go about everything the same way. I read my lines in the morning and hope I remember them but with Katniss it's the same character but she's constantly evolving and changing and growing so you're growing and changing with her so I never really feel like 'Oh I've got it down' because she's always changing into something else." The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part One goes on release in November.
