The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Victory Tour Poster



Let the Victory Tour commence… The Hunger Games: Catching Fire recently unveiled a poster featuring stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson all dressed in white and ready for their victory tour around the districts of Panem.

The eye catching poster appears as less an advertisement for the film and more a promotion for the victory tour that will take up much of the early parts of the newest entry in The Hunger Games franchise.


With Katniss and Peeta defying the Capitol and the evil President Snow, and both managing to survive and win the 74th Hunger Games in the previous film, the stage is set for rebellion to catch fire on a wider scale, especially with the ill-fated ‘lovers’ travelling around the districts on the annual victory tour.

The poster shows Panem’s hottest couple all glossed up like a couple of plastic dolls, ready to dazzle the districts with their death defying story but also to convince the ordinary folk that they are indeed as in love as they claim to be. Their stern faces say it all about how happy they are to be together and to be targets of the threatened President Snow.

If the roses, white clothes and floating petals are anything to go by, their relationship looks set to go to the next level but will it be for love or is it a ruse to keep the people of Panem from revolting?

Shooting continues on Catching Fire after a short break while Lawrence captured the hearts of seemingly everyone with her stair stumbling and kooky acceptance speech as she won the best actress Oscar for her turn in Silver Linings Playbook. Set pictures have shown the new arena featuring Katniss surrounded by water and in a figure hugging wetsuit.


Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson are again joined by Donald Sutherland as President Snow and new additions to the cast include Oscar winner Philip Symour Hoffman and Amanda Plummer and Jeffrey Wright. Hoffman is taking the role of new Head Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee but Katniss and Peeta will also be joined in the new arena by Jena Malone as Johanna Mason and Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair.

Catching Fire promises more fighting to the death and a whole new level of threat to the young innocents pictured in the new poster. There will, no doubt, be blood when it is released on November 22nd, 2013.
