It is on.
In an arresting new set of character posters for Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the resistance fighters nab the spotlight – and the Capitol should be very, very worried.
In contrast to earlier images that portray members of the Districts in sterilized, Capitol-driven propaganda posters, the newly released pictures showcase the fierce grit and determination of those rising up to join the “Mockingjay” – a.k.a. Katniss Everdeen (a.k.a. life of the after party Jennifer Lawrence).
The well-armed warriors include Katniss-smitten Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) and Capitol defector Cressida, with Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer showing off her half-shaved head to awesome effect. Plus, Evan Ross makes his Hunger Games debut as Messalla.
Is it Nov. 21 yet?
