‘Hunger Games’ offers two new ‘Catching Fire’ posters in celebration of the Victory Tour!


catching-fire-victory-poster-1The official Hunger Games Facebook fan page has debuted two new posters featuring Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) alongside an announcement of their new Victory Tour!

For those of you who haven’t read Catching Fire or need a reminder, here’s an explanation of the Victory Tour from the Hunger Games wiki:

Following each Hunger Games, the Capitol runs a Victory Tour that features the victor (or Victors) of the previous Games traveling around Panem. Designed to lower the districts’ self-esteem and show off the power the Capitol has over them, the Tour is placed almost halfway between the annual Games in order to “keep the horror fresh and immediate.” It begins in District 12 and then goes in descending order to District 1, followed by the Capitol. The winner’s district is skipped and saved for last.

The Capitol PN, an official Facebook page presenting itself as the propaganda mouth of the Capitol, had the following to say about the Victory Tour:

PANEM ALERT: President Coriolanus Snow is pleased to announce this year’s Victory Tour, featuring Katniss Everdeen & Peeta Mellark – Victors of the 74th Hunger Games! The Capitol PN demands that all districts prepare accordingly. Inquire with your local district officials for further instructions.

No additional information has been made available on what to expect from the Victory Tour, but the folks behind Catching Fire were gracious enough to provide us with two new movie posters featuring Peeta and Katniss dressed for the Victory Tour:
