New Catching Fire Poster Doesn’t Spark

catchingfireposterMaybe it’s me, but I’m having difficulty getting behind this poster for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. We see Katniss Everdeen (as portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence) standing atop a mountain with her bow and… well, just standing there. Just like Man of Steel, it’s another promotional misfire.

I think the image is rather static and dull and conveys nothing about the action expected to be in this flick. Also, the look — like it was done with pastels or colored pencils — is… different. The clouds that look like wings behind Katniss are a little too heavy-handed for me. To me, it looks like the marketing people are trying to create a sense of romantic adventure more than set the stage for a love triangle.

The image seems to be going over well with… a certain segment of the fandom, but I’m not a a booster. I really hope this isn’t the final official one-sheet for the movie. This should just be another in the series, and there’s plenty of time to get it right.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens Nov. 22.

Oh, yeah? Sez you!
