The first poster for the upcoming sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has been revealed by the films official Facebook page. However, rather than advertise the new film, the poster cleverly plays on the Victory Tour aspect of Katniss and Peeta. As we all know they won the 74th Annual Hunger Games, and as they are about to embark on their victory tour of all the districts, this poster have been released to promote that fact.
The Facebook page is in on the idea too, and with the poster came the following quote: “The Capitol proudly announces the victors of the 74th annual Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen & Peeta Mellark, as they embark on this year’s Victory Tour! Stay tuned to The Capitol PN for updates…”

Winning means that they must turn around and leave their familyand close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
