Attention, tributes! The first poster for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′ has been released and it is hot, hot, hot!
While we would have loved to see Jennifer Lawrence and her sexy co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson grace the first poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, this image of a mockingjay encircled by flames is pretty sweet. And it definitely has us excited for the latest installment of The Hunger Games, which, sadly, is still 10 months away. Talk about a tease!
‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′ Poster — First Poster Released For Film
The poster was first released on the movie’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts on Jan. 22.
“Check out the new logo for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1… and LIKE if you’re excited for #Mockingjay!”, reads the caption on the official The Hunger Games Facebook page.
The mockingjay is a significant symbol in the Hunger Games saga. Jennifer’s character Katniss Everdeen wears a mockingjay pin from her beloved sister, Prim, while participating in the Hunger Games, and the Capitol-created bird eventually evolves into a symbol of rebellion for the oppressed people of Panem.
The latest Hunger Games flick features returning stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, as well as Sam Claflin, Julianne Moore, Natalie Dormer, Lily Rabe, Evan Ross, and more.
Josh Hutcherson Mocks ‘The Hunger Games’ While Hosting ‘SNL’
Josh Hutcherson hosted Saturday Night Live on Nov. 23, and he didn’t waste any time before mocking the The Hunger Games.
Right off the bat, Josh made fun of how his character Peeta “immediately gets hurt and has to be carried around for the rest of movie.” Truth.
After several more Hunger Games-themed jokes, Josh begged everyone to chill out, because “The Hunger Games is just a movie.” “And a book!” SNL star Kate Mckinnon pointed out, which led to our favorite joke of the sketch:
“It’s a book?” Josh asked, confused. We love that Josh isn’t too proud to poke fun of The Hunger Games, but all jokes aside, we can’t wait to see Mockingjay – Part 1!
The movie won’t be released until Nov. 21, 2014, so we still have a ways to go!
