THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 1 Propaganda from the Capitol

Posted on June 20, 2014 at 2:57 pm by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


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 pretty fun. 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.

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.
