The hue matches that of the aforementioned teaser, which contained no footage of the particular film however featured an summary snowy (ahem) scene of a songbird and snake melting into good gold, and asking the viewer to decide on sides. The official synopsis is as follows: “The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes follows a young Coriolanus (Tom Blyth) who is the last hope for his failing lineage, the once-proud Snow family that has fallen from grace in a post-war Capitol.
