The first movie poster for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1″ has been revealed and, you guessed it, it’s a Mockingjay pin. On fire.

The teaser poster was released Wednesday and is making the rounds on Twitter. The poster, like the teasers for previous installments “The Hunger Games” and “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” draws inspiration from book covers of Suzanne Collins’ bestselling book trilogy, on which the films are based. This poster features the fictional Mockingjay bird with outstretched wings, symbolic of the story’s heroine Katniss Everdeen, who inadvertently becomes the face of a rebellion.

“Mockingjay – Part 1″ is slated for theatrical release in November, with “Part 2″ due out in 2015. The tale is set in a post-apocalyptic country called Panem, in which children are forced to compete in a televised battle to the death. Katniss, portrayed on the big screen by Jennifer Lawrence, manages to survive the battle and in the second film reenters the battle arena after Panem’s autocratic ruler sees her as a threat.

The films have been box-office giants; last winter’s “Catching Fire” earned more than $854 million worldwide. (Check out scenes from “Catching Fire” in the gallery above.) The films have also helped Lawrence’s acting career and popularity skyrocket.

Francis Lawrence (no relation), who directed “Catching Fire,” is set to return for the final two films in the series.

What do you think of the new poster? Let us know in the comments.

    cool!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Elliot says:

    This was at the end of the movie if you stayed, and it showed the mockingjay which represents Katniss trying to break free from the capitols custody.

  3. Juan Carlos says:

    This should've been a television show instead of a movie series. It is way more suited for tv than it is for theatre.

  4. Mike says:

    It's utterly ridiculous that the last book is being made into two movies. There's not nearly enough plot to make two good movies.

    • Natalie says:

      there is enough plot I’ve read the book 3 times yes I may have an unhealthy obsession but there is plenty for 2 parts the book alone is 3 parts anyways

      • Tina Brown says:

        I agree with you Natalie. I was wondering the whole time I was reading how were they going to fit it into a two hour movie. I can't wait just know I will be on the edge of my seat until the conclusion in 2015.

    • Dragonslayer says:

      Perhaps you yourself didn't get enough out of the books. If they only made this into one movie, so much would be left out. Because there is PLENTY of plot to make two movies out of Mockingjay.

  5. Natalie says:

    I can’t wait for mockingjay I’m such a big fan of the trilogy and jennifer

  6. taylor says:

    why is it in 2 parts?it can fit into a two hour movie just fine.that includes the epilouge.

  7. Lindsay says:

    Well I hope that you at least read the books, if you did you would learn that there actually is.

  8. wupra says:

    Love Peeta and Katniss

  9. eliza says:
