‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ IMAX Poster Sets Jennifer Lawrence Among the Gods
Both in the original Suzanne Collins-penned books and the first film, ‘The Hunger Games’ alludes to many stories from Greek and Roman mythology, the standout being Katniss’ (Lawrence) depiction as a play on the chaste and wild goddess Diana/Artemis. Now, in this creative IMAX artwork for the sequel, inspired by Fantastic Realist Kris Kuksi and debuted by our friends over at Badass Digest, she takes her place among Baroque-style statues of gods and goddesses, sprinkled with scenes from ‘Catching Fire.’
‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ picks up after the events of the first film with District 12’s Katniss and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) embarking on a Victory Tour across Panem in celebration of their recent win in The Hunger Games. But when a rebellion sparks across the country, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) attempts to snuff out their symbol of hope, the Girl on Fire herself, by throwing her back in the arena for the Quarter Quell, a special Hunger Games in which the tributes are picked from the pool of past champions.
‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ hits theaters November 22, and its marketing campaign alone has been interesting to see, with this new IMAX poster upping the ante. See it in full below.
