'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Posters: Meet the New Characters of District 13Nick Romano |
Six new 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' posters have hit the web, revealing what we've only glimpsed in the film's first trailer: the new cast of characters populating District 13. From 'Game of Thrones' star Natalie Dormer to the return of Liam Hemsworth's Gale to completely unfamiliar faces, let's meet Katniss' entourage, shall we?
It's funny, but kinda true -- Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss gets an entourage in 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1.' As she arrives in the lost District 13 -- once thought to be destroyed in the civil war predating the films, and now the home base of the rebels -- President Coin (Julianne Moore), Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and the rest of the rebels need Katniss to be the face of the movement as the Mockingjay. To best utilize her image, she gets a camera crew and bodyguards to record her every move for a documentary of sorts, to be broadcast to the other districts to comeback the Capitol's propaganda.
That's where the likes of Cressida (played by Dormer, the rebels' propaganda documentary director), Messalla (Evan Ross, Cressida’s assistant), Boggs (Mahershala Ali, Katniss' bodyguard), Castor and Pollux (Wes Chatham and Elden Henson, Cressida's cameramen), and, of course, Gale come into play. Wired debuted these new characters in the posters below, but there are plenty more to look forward to, espcially in 'Part 2,' like 'Star Wars: Episode 7' actress and Dormer's 'Game of Thrones' co-star Gwendoline Christie as Commander Lyme.
'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1' premieres November 21 and will kickstart the two-part finale to the last run in this cinematic series. 'Part 2' will drop on November 20, 2015.
