‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Teaser Poster Is Basically ‘The Hunger Games’ Teaser Poster

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Who wants to participate in gruesome, bloody, terrifying hand-to-hand combat on live national television again? No, no, we’re not talking about last night’s Golden Globes, we’re talking about The Hunger Games: Catching Fire! Forgive us for that terrible lede, but there’s not much to say about the Jennifer Lawrence-starring film as of yet, considering we’re still just working with scattered stills from the sequel and a brand-new teaser poster (released today).

A teaser poster that looks almost exactly like the first teaser poster for last year’s The Hunger Games. At least that fire looks a bit more realistic? Sort of? Maybe? And its central mockingjay has a bit more detail? Nope, sorry, it’s pretty much the same poster. Snooze. Don’t believe us? Take a look at a side-by-side comparison after the break.

THG Side by Side

Let’s hope that the somewhat-righted mockingjay was done as a purposeful nod to Katniss’ somewhat-righted aims in the next film. Maybe when we get to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay films, that birdie will be aiming sky high!

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens on November 22nd. [Lionsgate]
