Over the last few weeks, we have seen a ton of new posters featuring some of The Hunger Games franchise biggest names. Unfortunately, there has been one major character missing, the Mockingjay herself Katniss Everdeen. It was obvious that her time would come as she is the face of the rebellion and the franchise and we all thought it would be a huge hit when it did come. Well it dropped this morning and it was hit huge, as we see a different kind of Katniss.
Yes, it is a poster of Katniss’ backside, but it is such a powerful poster. Through the first two movies, Katniss has been one to not fight as much as possible. There are life or death situations where she must, but she try to do as little as possible while in the games. She has struggled with what she’s been through and can’t really overcome what she has has to do to survive and still remain the person she is.
By the end of Catching Fire, there was a moment where we could see Katniss was starting to realize what was happening and what needed to be done. By the time Mockingjay – Part 1 roles around this November, we will without a doubt see a broken Katniss, but a Katniss that will now do anything to fight for her people, the Mockingjay people, and do whatever needs to be done.
As you can see from the poster, Katniss is dressed in some new gear. Gear that highlights her ‘mocking jay’ symbolism perfectly. Her shoulders are playing the wings as she is dressed is hard black leather, looking ready for battle. I must say, I can’t wait to see what the outfit fully looks like and what this version of Katniss will be like as she is easily one of my all-time favorite female heroes.
