Out of all of the posters of the past year – this one is my favorite. It’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire IMAX poster. Turns out that I am not the only one with good taste (sorry if you hate it). The poster won The Best Special Edition Movie Poster of 2013.
That’s right Catching Fire, keep proving others have to live up to you!
Inspired by the artwork of Kris Kuksi, this poster places the film’s heroine at the forefront of an intricate sculpture filled with so many details that it’s hard not to stop and stare at it for a while. It seems to be a propaganda piece that has been subverted by the growing revolution, featuring a winged Katniss standing over a blindfolded President Snow with machine cogs, ominous guards, and implements of torture scattered amongst what otherwise might be a monument to the nobility of the workers. A beautiful and fascinating design.
