Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 new poster hints at bloody rebellion

Exclusive artwork has been revealed showing a soldier intent on revolution

A limited edition poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 has been revealed at Comic-Con in San Diego, ahead of the movie’s autumn release.

Created by street artist WK Interact, the black, white and red military artwork depicts a soldier holding a machine gun behind the symbol of the Mockingjay, hinting at a bloody rebellion.

The next instalment in the hit franchise, based on Suzanne Collins’ bestselling novels, will see heroine Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, find herself in District 13 after destroying the Games forever.

“Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage,” an official synopsis reads.


The exclusive, graffiti-style poster follows the latest teaser clip, showing President Snow (Donald Sutherland) warning against Panem resistance before an interruption from District 13’s hacker interrupts to announce: “The Mockingjay lives.”

The official trailer is set to debut on Friday, also at Comic-Con, the four-day festival celebrating comic books, film, TV, video games and more.

Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Jena Malone, Woody Harrelson, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Stanley Tucci also star in the penultimate Hunger Games movie, directed by Francis Lawrence.


Earlier this week, two creepy “living portrait” posters were released, showing Johanna and Peeta slowly rotating to the swell of an orchestra.

The movie is due to reach UK cinemas on 21 November, with the final part following in November 2015.
