The next chapter of the The Hunger Games is upon us. Coming this November is the first part of the finale to Lionsgate's big time franchise: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. While there is still plenty of time before the film's release, it should come to no surprise to moviegoers if they start seeing the ad campaign begin for Mockingjay Part 1. A cased point of this is the latest update the blockbuster as release by TheCapital.pn (as well as Yahoo Movies) are seven posters for the upcoming film.
These set of posters do not feature the likes of Katniss or any familiar face to the franchise. However, these posters certainly show off just what the world of Panem is like since the events of the second film. Rather then featuring the victors of the Hunger Games, these poster feature common citizens of the Districts. The idea behind this campaign is to indicate that the Capitol wants to advertise these good citizens as the real heroes of Panem.
As viral campaigns go, this is not a bad one for Mockingjay Part 1. As already pointed out, these posters are suppose to give viewers an idea of what the world is like in the upcoming film. While fans and moviegoers know better, the lie that is being presented in these posters set the stage perfectly for the next installment of The Hunger Games. On another note, the looks of these posters are intriguing. Not only do show off the series' compelling design, but when you compare it to the posters from the previous movie, these images create a whole new vide to the world of The Hunger Games.
