The victor banner from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has been released.
The banner, which appears on the Hunger Games Explorer site, shows the victors from all the districts together with the tag line “Remember who the enemy is.”
If you haven’t seen the first film, The Hunger Games, firstly, I urge you to go and do that, but secondly, the following will be a bit spoiler-ish.
We all know that Katniss and Peeta won the 74th Hunger Games at the end of the last movie, and it’s established that the winners are free to enjoy the life of a Victor, filled with wonderful spoils for the rest of their days, right? But, in this new banner, you see a lot of older characters referred to as “Victors” and they’re all holding weapons.
I’ll leave you to your own devices to interpret what that could possibly mean.
The official synopsis for the film states “THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.”
The cast includes, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Donald Sutherland. With Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens in theatres November 22.
