Things have been a little quiet on The Hunger Games news front lately, owing to all sorts of superhero and Star Wars news, but these new propaganda posters are too cool to pass up.  Direct from The Capitol are these new looks at so-called District Heroes, each representing the lifestyle and career field of Panem’s various districts.  It’s less “viral marketing” and more of a cool way to expand the existing universe and remind audiences that another film (or two) are on the way.

Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, and Donald Sutherland star in Francis Lawrence’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, opening November 21.  Hit the jump to take a look at the new artwork.

Check out the District Heroes character posters below, which were accompanied by the following message from The Capitol:

In honor of our brave brothers and sisters of Panem, we’re pleased to share the DISTRICT HEROES COLLECTION.
Today, The Capitol, under the authority of the Capitol Ministry of Information, released seven District Heroes across Yahoo and Tumblr.
Please take a minute to reflect and learn more about these esteemed district citizens at the links below.
We also strongly encourage you and your readers to register for updates from Capitol TV. Remember, we are #OnePanem.

The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Danny Strong and Peter Craig and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.
