It has been a busy week or so for the folks behind the highly anticipated sequel to last year’s THE HUNGER GAMES. We have been seeing many new victory portraits pop-up online and while character posters are now becoming a dime-a-dozen, these are a very unique way to present the characters to the audience (with no added sparks for effect! – we’re looking at you G.I. JOE: RETALIATION!)
As part of the marketing, they have even opened some new viral social media pages. From Capitol Couture, fans can link out to the Official Capitol Portrait on Instagram or the Instagram tab on Facebook.
So far, the following are the only pieces that have been released. They are Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks), Caesar Flickerman (Stanley Tucci), Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson), Cinna (Lenny Kravitz), Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), Beetee (Jeffrey Wright), Johanna Mason (Jena Malone), Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin), and President Snow (Donald Sutherland). With more big characters like Wiress (Amanda Plummer), Gloss (Alan Ritchson), Claudius Templesmith (Toby Jones) and Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) unaccounted for, expect more to pop up online soon and we will be sure to update the article once they do.
So check out the Victory Tour posters below and let us know what you think in the comments.

SYNOPSIS: “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour’ of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE is set to parade into 2D and IMAX theaters on November 22, 2013.
