The Hunger Games, the upcoming film based on the post-apocalyptic Suzanne Collins novel has released a new mesmerizing motion poster exclusive to Yahoo.
Set in a future where children are whisked away from their homes by an oppressive, monolithic Government and forced to compete in a televised contest in which they fight to the death, the flaming crest seems to set a tone of darkness and consumption. It carries themes reminiscent of ancient tales of human sacrifice, with a commentary on the decline of a culture fixated on news/reality television voyeurism. It's like The Running Man, but with kids! Yay!
Set for release on March 23, 2012, the film stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson.
Check out the cool motion poster below.
