The first promotional poster for Suzanne Collins’ trilogy, THE HUNGER GAMES, was just released. It shows the mockingjay pin that Katniss wears into the arena engulfed in flames. The animated version is super cool with its fiery sound effects.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the story (which, trust me, it won’t be long before you know EVERYTHING about this series), here’s the synopsis from IMDB.com:
In a not-too-distant future, North America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 13 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss' young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.
