Lionsgate has released a new poster for director Francis Lawrence’s upcoming sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The film finds Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss and Josh Hutcherson’s Peeta dealing with the after-effects of the first film, as a nation-wide uprising begins to swell. This new poster is quite visually appealing, and it’s graced with the following quote from the novel “The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand.” While I was admittedly apprehensive about Francis Lawrence taking over the director’s chair from Gary Ross, the first trailer for Catching Fire was pretty spot-on, and this new poster has me really looking forward to seeing more footage from the film.
Hit the jump to check out the new poster. The film also stars Liam Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jena Malone, Jeffrey Wright, and Amanda Plummer. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens on November 22nd in IMAX and traditional theaters.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire:
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.
