We were promised a surprise today by Lionsgate and they have given us an incredible new Catching Fire poster that’s very different from any we’ve seen yet from either film! Be sure to click for full size!
Not only are we getting a new poster, but news of an awesome new official contest for all Hunger Games fans!
Today’s poster of Katniss Everdeen includes a tagline pulled straight from the incredible words of Suzanne Collins – The sun persists on rising, so I make myself stand.
We are encouraging fans to design and illustrate the first chapter of ‘Catching Fire’ for the chance to see their work featured on The Hunger Games’ official Facebook page! Fans can incorporate photos, drawings, GIFs & video to create an eye-popping multimedia experience inspired by the words of the book – http://lions.gt/GlossiCF
What do you think of the poster? I love how the clouds become wings! Are you going to enter the Catching Fire illustration contest? If you do, we’d love if you could share your entries with us too – we always love to see your creative fan art!
There’s going to be a Lionsgate presentation at this year’s CinemaCon event in Las Vegas for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The conference is all about debuting upcoming films and products – taking along some of the big stars, producers and directors to talk to cinema onwers and operators from around the world.
Lionsgate will be giving its presentation on Thursday April 18 with word that Sam Claflin, who plays Finnick Odair, will be there.
Collider has been down at the venue and spied this really huge display for Catching Fire. As you can see, Lionsgate has placed huge versions of the Character osters next to one another in a massive display.
They’re also reporting that Lionsgate will be showing new footage of the film at CinemaCon. We will be sure to keep you updated.
A few days into the new year, influential Wall Street analyst Richard Geeenfield of BTIG has weighed in with his 2013 predictions for the media sector, telling his clients that Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be the biggest movie of the year and Disney’s The Lone Ranger will be the year’s biggest disappointment.
What do you think – do you agree with his prediction? We’re definitely looking forward to seeing Catching Fire this year!
Lionsgate was handing out this exclusive new Hunger Games poster at their booth at Comic Con today to promote the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray release (which includes the little San Diego Comic Con logo at the bottom left corner). We love it!
