New Catching Fire Character Banners Arrive
Update: Katniss and Peeta get suited up

Update: The full gallery of Catching Fire character banners gives us a full line-up of runners and riders for the 75th Hunger Games. There's Katniss and Peeta in their Quarter Quell finery, alongside brother and sister Gloss (Alan Ritchson) and Cashmere (Stephanie Leigh Schlund) of District 1, District 7's Johanna (Jena Malone), Wiress (Amanda Plummer) and Beetee (Jeffrey Wright) of District 3, and Brutus (Bruno Gunn) and Enobaria (Meta Golding) of District 2.


 


Anything other movie marketing departments can do, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire can do better - and with more tracker jackers* - and we're excited to debut two new character banners revealing Sam Claflin's Finnick and Lynn Cohen's Mags, his 80 year-old mentor from District 4. These posters, part of a broader roll out of promos foregrounding Panem's Hunger Games tributes from down the ages, could be just the thing to distract a dissenting nation.


The Capitol's inspiration behind its propaganda-styled campaign daren't speak its name (clue: it rhymes with 'Blosef Derrbels'), but it's done a great job of selling the corrupt grandeur of President Snow's state machinery. Instead of eating cake, the people of the 12 Districts will be invited to revel in the 'The Quarter Quell', a killing ground to which Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) and other successful tributes will be invited (read: ordered) for more televised carnage.

When we meet them, Katniss and Peeta are back home after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games. From there, things get worse for them and their families. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their loved ones, embarking on a 'Victor's Tour' of the districts of Panem. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as Snow (Donald Sutherland) prepares the 75th games – a competition that could change Panem forever.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is out in the UK on November 21. The movie's first trailer, and a comprehensive Empire breakdown thereof, is out now.

* Other forms of jacker are available.
