GALLERY: 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Capitol Portraits

Behold the distinguished men and women of Panem with this series of Capitol Portraits. Truly, the "Hunger Games" sequel is going to be a class act ... and/or will possibly feature all of the characters just kind of sitting around a lot and giving meaningful looks to something out of frame.

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" will open Nov. 22, just in time to make your Thanksgiving a bit more violent and dystopian.

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Poster: Mockingjay Ablaze

We hope you're hungry.

You have a year and change to whet your appetite for one of 2013's most anticipated films, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." The film, a sequel to last spring's blockbuster "The Hunger Games," is slated for a Nov. 22, 2013 release with Jennifer Lawrence returning as Katniss, the series' fierce heroine.

Check out the newly released animated poster (released on Facebook) below, featuring Katniss' iconic Mockingjay pin and the tagline "Every Revolution Begins With a Spark."

GALLERY: Our Odds Are Always in Jennifer Lawrence's Favor

Jennifer Lawrence is Katniss. But that doesn't mean we always have to see her makeup-free with a mussed up single brown braid all the time. The blonde's beauty is just too much to be contained.

We first fell for the rising star in "Winter's Bone," she kicked our asses last summer in "X-Men: First Class," she's stolen our hearts time and again with her winning looks on the red carpet at all the awards shows, and then, of course, she landed the lead in the adaptations of the "Hunger Games" novels. And just wait until she blows you away yet again in "Silver Linings Playbook."

Also, she's gorgeous. Which just happens to make her perfect for a Hot People Looking Hot gallery.

12 Campaign Posters for Movie Characters

Will Ferrell in "The Campaign" Warner Bros.

As the 2012 presidential election quickly approaches (tomorrow! eek!), Americans must carefully analyze each candidate's policies and personalities to determine who they want to lead the country for the next four years.

And then there's the funnier — but not any less absurd — election at the center of "The Campaign," a new political satire pitting Will Ferrell's charismatic, gaffe-prone incumbent against Zach Galifianakis's Washington outsider in a North Carolina congressional race.

We're not sure we'd vote for either of these guys in real life, but you know who we would vote for? Yoda. And The Dude. And after "The Avengers," Hulk would most definitely get our endorsement.

So we asked old friend Old Red Jalopy to get the ball rolling and mock up some campaign posters for some of movie favorites. Get More »

Francis Lawrence to Direct 'Hunger Games' Conclusion, 'Mockingjay' Parts 1 and 2

It seems Francis Lawrence is the true victor of "The Hunger Games."

The "Water for Elephants" helmer who's currently shooting the franchise's second installment, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," has just been tapped to remain at the head for the rest of the series. That's right, Lawrence will direct "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" and "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

This should come as somewhat of a surprise to fans, who've become accustomed to franchises based on a Y.A. book series getting a new director for each film, along with a single director handling the two-part conclusion. Such has certainly been the case for "The Twilight Saga" and "Harry Potter." Still, fans who often feel that new directors mean tonal changes that aren't always for the best should be breathing a sigh of relief — Lawrence presumably will offer a consistent voice for all three of the four "Hunger Games" films.

Woody Harrelson Totally Digs the 'Catching Fire' Script

Panem is without its most famous drunk — for now. Though production began Monday in Atlanta on the highly anticipated "Hunger Games" follow-up "Catching Fire," actor Woody Harrelson (who portrays oft-tipsy Haymitch Abernathy) was instead in Canada supporting his upcoming release "Seven Psychopaths" at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The actor, who said he was days away from flying to Georgia to film the dystopian drama, spoke with MTV News' Josh Horowitz about how his portrayal of the District 12 mentor could change under new director Francis Lawrence's vision and how he prepped for the sequel.
