The rebel posters are here and they are slick, dark and fierce. Judging by these posters, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is going to deliver an all-out insurrection with weapons, warriors and, most fearsome of all, demands for freedom.
“She’s the face of the rebellion — they’ll follow her,” says Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman), in the trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. That face belongs to Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), of course, and we can’t wait to see her take on the challenge of becoming the Mockingjay. In this first Katniss rebel poster, we can only see her back…for now.
Wired.com recently said, “If there’s anything fans of The Hunger Games know, it’s that advertising is propaganda with a nicer name.” We couldn’t agree more, particularly with these new posters.
First up, we have Gale (Liam Hemsworth), who is one-third of Katniss’ love triangle. Handsome and stoic, Gale looks pretty badass in his protective gear that’s loaded with weaponry. Those of us who haven’t read the book can only wonder if his love arrows will pierce Katniss’ heart.
Cressida (Natalie Dormer from Game of Thrones) plays a propaganda filmmaker who’s working to create solidarity among the rebels. Her green, grapevine tattoo on the side of her head signifies hope and renewal.
Messalla (Evan Ross from the reboot of TV’s 90210) is Cressida’s production assistant. We wonder if the Capitol has anything like a Starbucks and if Messalla is forced to pick up Cressida’s skinny latte each morning. Messalla’s facial piercings indicate that he has a tough exterior, possibly covering up a soft interior.
Castor (Wes Chatham) is the brother to Pollux, their names deriving from Greek mythology, where, according to legend, the two were twin brothers who shared the same mother, but had two separate fathers — Tyndareus and Zeus. As an Avox, Castor had to work in the dangerous underground passages beneath the Capitol for half a decade. The siblings now work on Cressida’s film crew.
Pollux (Elden Henson), also tongueless, has a vast knowledge of the underground passageways and is an important ally for Katniss.
We can’t wait for Nov. 21!
