There is probably nothing better to do with the Galaxy Tab S than watching movies. The screen, which has a resolution of 2560×1600, is incredibly stunning. Samsung knows this and is using an upcoming film to really show what the tablet is capable of. Lionsgate and Samsung will work together for the premiere of the trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1.

The trailer for the film will initially debut at Comic-Con on June 25 in San Diego, but people can go to Best Buy stores featuring Samsung hubs across the country to see for themselves. In fact, watching the trailer at a Samsung hub in Best Buy will net a free movie ticket for when the film is released on November 21.

Hit the break for the full press release.
