UPDATED: Lionsgate Released ‘The Hunger Games’ Characters Posters
Remember our last post where we reported a rumor saying ‘The Hunger Games’ characters posters will be released next week and full trailer will released on November 18, 2011?
Well, Lionsgate surprised us by releasing the characters posters yesterday to the delight of Hunger Games fans around the world. Movie news have been so dry recently that Hunger Games fans are certainly eager for something new to hold them on before watching the movie in the cinemas on March 23, 2011.
The characters posters were released on different websites but we have posted all of it up here for easy viewing. Characters posters that were released are Katniss, Peeta, Gale, Haymitch, Effie, Cinna, Rue and Cato respectively.

Initially when I heard the rumor that characters posters will be released, I was wondering if they will only release posters featuring the main characters only, such Katniss, Peeta and Gale, then leave it at that. I’m very happy to see that we’ve finally gotten our first glimpse of Haymitch, Effie, Cinna, Rue and Cato too.
Though the characters posters didn’t show much, I do like the dark, serious and polished feel. ‘The Hunger Games’ has a dark theme to it and I’m glad Lionsgate didn’t try to lighten it up or shift the focus to the little bit of romance found in the story itself.
It’s interesting to see Katniss being the only one who is facing to the right while all the other characters are facing to the left. Perhaps this is to make people to be able to notice Katniss being the lead as well as a hint of what’s to come in the future of Katniss.
Photoshopped feel of the posters led me to think perhaps they are trying to portray it through the polished and artificial feel in Capitol.
I love that Lionsgate did not leave out the minor detail of gold eyeliner for Cinna. The poster I’m most disappointed would be for Cato. He doesn’t seem any different from a pretty boy here and quite unlike the Career I read of who is so ready to kill off others.
What do you think? Leave a comment below and tell us your thoughts about the posters!
UPDATE: The posters have now been updated in High Resolution. Thank you to Down With The Capitol for the photos! -Trish (Admin)
