In case you haven't seen the second Hunger Games trailer...

…it’s just been released. There are some retreads from the first trailer in it — like that chilling scene at The Reaping, where Katniss volunteers in Prim’s place, screaming, “I volunteer! I volunteer!” — but there’s also some new stuff here (we can’t get over Effie Trinket)! Who’s going on opening day March 23? And who else is still not crazy about Josh Hutcherson as Peeta?

This latest one is for the first volume of Jessica Spotswood’s Cahill Witch Chronicles, Born Wicked — and it looks like Entertainment Weekly got a bunch of behind-the-scenes footage too. Take a look!
