The Hunger Games is a legitimate phenomenon, and the fourth film in the series, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, is due out in theaters on Novmeber 20th of this year. 

The arc of the series started with a bold new voice of revolution, depicting young people rising up against a fascistic, Roman Empire-like state that forced them to compete in blood sports. As the films have progressed, however, the series’ heroine, Katniss Everdeen played by Jennifer Lawrence, has been transformed from a true revolutionary into the unwitting mouthpiece for a counter-fascism that would overthrow the state. 

In the below motion poster, released out of this year’s SDCC, with its red colors and bold 1950s-style statue, you can sense the whiff of Communist dictatorship, and how Katniss really is being manipulated against her own whims. 

What do you think? Is this next film going to explode both the dictatorship and the violent revolution?
