Although the much-anticipated sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is being released 6 months from now, Lionsgate is continuing to build anticipation by releasing a series of teaser posters. A new teaser poster for the film has arrived on the film’s Instagram account. The slick poster features a battle-ready Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) standing tall as a mocking jay forms in the clouds behind her. The tagline of the poster reads, “The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand.” The tagline is taken directly from the opening passage from the second book. Check out the poster below.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) — a competition that could change Panem forever.
The Francis Lawrence-directed sequel is set to open in conventional and IMAX theaters on November 22nd, 2013. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Donald Sutherland, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Sam Claflin, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Stanley Tucci, and Jeffery Wright.
