Rumor alert: New trailer for 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' to debut at VMAs

Hunger Games fans may want to tune into the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday, on the off-chance Lionsgate chooses to debut a brand-new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1.

There's been no official word yet from Lionsgate if a new trailer for Mockingjay will debut during the VMAs -- but whenever it does show up, it's expected to be more than twice as long as the first trailer released during San Diego Comic Con last month.

An announcement about the new Mockingjay trailer is expected tomorrow -- but in the meantime, fans are speculating that the VMAs may be the chosen venue for Lionsgate to debut the latest trailer. It's soon after the release of the first trailer -- but time is ticking down to the movie's November release date, and the VMAs have hosted reveals for previous trailers in The Hunger Games franchise.

Rumors that the new trailer will be approximately 2-1/2 minutes in length will be welcome news to plenty of fans who were disappointed by the short glimpse at Mockingjay released last month -- which featured only limited footage, and only one short line from Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence).

Lionsgate has not been very eager to release images or footage from Mockingjay. The two-part finale to The Hunger Games franchise was filmed simultaneously and only wrapped up a couple of months ago. However, the first of the two films is set to hit theaters in just three short months -- and by this time with the previous two films, plenty more sneak peeks had been revealed.

Instead, Lionsgate has focused on more immersive, propaganda-style promotions for the film -- having released a series of artistic posters lacking any official characters from the film, and two teaser videos that show a brainwashed Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a hacked video from Beetee (Jeffrey Wright).
