‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Releases A New Promo Image Of Katniss Everdeen


For the past couple of days we’ve been getting some really great official Capitol portraits of various characters from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Yesterday, two portraits were released — one for Effie Trinket and one for Caesar Flickerman. Today another two portraits were released — one for Haymitch Abernathy and one for Cinna. I was under the impression that we would get another two portraits tomorrow and then another pair of portraits and on and on leading up to the release of portraits of Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark at the end of the week. I was wrong. Late tonight, the official Capitol portrait for Katniss (played by Jennifer Lawrence) was released … and man, is it the coolest photo yet. Click below to see it in full.

As Pink reader ClaireMichelle notes, you can see that the Mockingjay has been crafted into Katniss’s dress … but you can only tell what it is if you know what the mockingjay symbol looks like. It’s a really spectacular dress. You will also note that unlike the previous 4 portraits that have been released that feature the characters sitting in chairs, Katniss is standing next to her chair. It seems to me her portrait is meant to convey an air of strength and nonconformity … it’s effing brilliant! I suspect more character portraits will be released to, at the very least, we still have more photos to look forward to. Peeta should get a portrait for sure … but I wonder how many of the other tributes competing in the Quarter Quell Hunger Games will be featured in official Capitol portraits of their own.

  • Joan

    Absolutely stunning…even though I kind of feel bad for the character… Any chance this could be the ” wedding dress”?

    • Joan

      Oh, I want Johanna and Finnick to have portraits! I think I’m one of those people that’s really looking forward to Jenna Malone’s performance.

    • ClaireMichelle

      I am really anxious to see Jena’s performance, and I hope she has a portrait too!! I really want to see her officially in character!

  • ClaireMichelle

    Seriously, this one is soooo amazing! Her dress is incredible!! And look at her chair compared to the rest too, much less comfortable. Definitely not on accident. ;) She is also the only one too look directly into the camera! Ah, that Katniss… Always defiant. The wardrobe is incredible this time around!

  • Kristín

    STUNNING! Can´t wait for this movie, i want a trailer!!!!

    I don’t think that’s a wedding dress. If anything, judging by the detailing, that’s the infamous dress Cinna designs which bursts into flames on national television, leaving behind different, black dress that resembles a Mockingjay.

    • ClaireMichelle

      The wedding dress is the one that bursts into flame and because the Mockingjay dress. :)

      You’re absolutely right! I stand corrected. Admittedly, I haven’t read the book since it came out. Good thing I plan to read it again right before the film is released.

    • ClaireMichelle

      I hate that I am just seeing that terrible autocorrect. Becomes not because. Ugh! And I need to read it again too! Definitely a good time before the movie though so I don’t get too nit picky! ;)

  • Alys

    I don’t think you could actually sit *down* in that dress thanks to the wire Mockingjay. She looks marvelous! Now Peeta deserves to be in a barrel and all will be well.

    I need to read the series again. So many details I’ve forgotten about, but these portraits are getting me geeked out!
