New 'Hunger Games' poster fires up anticipation

Posters for Hunger Games will soon be popping up in your local movie theaters, but Lionsgate has already released a special “motion poster” that features Katniss’s mockingjay pin engulfed in crackling flames. Not only is the dynamic poster cool — I’ve been basking in its warm glow for a good 20 minutes — but the Obi-Wan-esque tagline and the Precious-like forged “ring” conjures up at least two classic blockbuster franchises.

This weekend, fans can collect limited edition Hunger Games mini posters at select movie theaters across the country, and be sure to enter the Ultimate Hunger Games Fan Sweeps on Facebook before the end of Comic-Con. Take a look at the explosive motion poster below:

You can practically set your computer on fire with the burning mockingjay sizzling on the Hunger Games website, where you can also count down the 247 days until the movie opens.

    That is awesome

    • Miranda

      The detail in it is stunning. The steam, smoke, and the way the fire moves is sooooo well done!

    • Maserda

      Woah. Awesome.

      While I am really excited for the movie, I am REALLY curious how Cinna’s fashions (particularly the fire capes) will be brought to life. If anything, this poster reminded me of that cape.

  • chocolateislove

    Took a long time to load, but that was pretty cool.

  • Carrie

    That poster is really cool. Very clever idea. I can’t wait to see the movie. I really hope it does the book justice.

    • black canary

      Carrie, you took the words right out of my mouth. March 2012 can’t get here fast enough.

    • googie

      Wish it was showing now! I’m gonna see it 10 times!

  • DarkPassenger

    Oh, hell yes.

    • Maureen

      My thoughts exactly! ;)


    Of the three books, The Hungar Games was the best. Catching Fire and Mockingjay were disappointing.

    • Jason C.

      Catching Fire was my favorite of the books, Mockingjay wasn’t as good until they reached the Capitol.

  • kaitybee

    gotta admit, I’m super excited to see this. even though I know the film makers/whoever else you want to blame are going to royally screw things up. you just can’t translate books to movies without losing some of the magic.

    • JD

      How the hell could you know they’re going to “royally screw up”? Speaking too soon, champ.

    • Jo

      Or Kaitybee you can wait for the movie to actually come out and see it before you begin to bash it. Geesh.

  • Hermione

    Oh hell yea!!!!!! This will be awesome.

  • Miranda

    This poster is MIND BLOWING. I’ve never seen a mostion poster before! If the poster is THIS GOOD imagine the movie!!! THG were the best book’s i’ve ever read in my life and I’m a MASSIVE HG fan! This movie is already shaping up to be amazing, they got Suzanne Collins who wrote the the script, it’s cast PHENOMINALY, and DANNY ELFMAN is writting the score!! Speaking of the music score.. i wonder if the music at the beggining of the motion poster is a little snippet of what Danny Elfman and T-Bone Burnett are coming up with..! :D

  • zozo

    Absolutely stunning!. I can’t wait for this film!!.

  • salma

    • Brad H

  • Suua P.

    Now this is what I call a Hunger Games poster. ‘The Mockingjay who was on Fire!’

    • Miranda

      • Suua P.

        I’m describing the poster.
