And so it begins. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay may still be six months away, but the swell of marketing materials has already begun. This isn't the first poster for the film, but it is the most interesting, showing a blood-red Mockingjay symbol conveniently positioned behind a beheaded President Snow statue:

It's a little melodramatic, I'll grant you, but that's kind of par for the course for this franchise. There are many interesting elements behind the mythology of The Hunger Games, but they too often take a backseat to the soapy dramatics and the annoying Mary Sue-ing of Katniss Everdeen. But that being said, Mockingjay Pt 1 was the best installment of the series, as a result of the increased scope and the thoughtful exploration of the moral compromise inherent to social movements, so hopefully the final film will build on that success.

Here's the first teaser poster, which is an incredibly boring variation of all the other Hunger Games posters, and the slightly improved Cannes promo poster:

Here's the official synopsis:

With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games: Mockinjay pt 2 comes out in theaters on November 20.
