The answers are all here. In black and white—and red.
The new IMAX poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 is both an in-world propaganda image for Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and her rebellion against the Capitol, and an advertisement for the movie franchise’s final chapter.
It also, through beautiful design, sends some interesting signals for 'fans' of both the film franchise and Suzanne Collins’ book series. The most obvious, of course, is the prevalence of roses, which symbolize the Capitol’s President Snow (Donald Sutherland). The leader of Panem always wears white roses and leaves them as threats for Katniss. He also, as we learned in Mockingjay — Part 1, uses them to cover up the fact that he smells like blood from years spent poisoning people.
Blood red is the only other color on this poster besides black and white, and you’ll notice it drips from the petals surrounding Katniss’ eye—the one that she uses to aim her bow and arrow and the one that is trained on Snow. Their final face-off is coming, but as this poster warns, nothing can prepare you for the end.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 hits theaters and IMAX Nov. 20.
