The Hunger Games: Catching Fire won’t be out until much later in this still-young year, but a film destined to make so much money can’t really start the marketing too soon. I am, still, a little surprised that two cryptic-ish posters have been unveiled by the Lionsgate marketing team, the both of which exhibit Jennifer Lawrence‘s Katniss and Josh Hutcherson‘s Peeta on their victory tour, also while striking victory poses.
You also get some neat architecture, and, although that doesn’t look like a habitable space, it happens to be the most I can take from this pair.

Fans, on the other hand, ought to eat this up.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will open on November 22.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
