Five ‘Hunger Games’ District Seals Revealed

It’s been relatively quiet on the Hunger Games front recently, so Lionsgate has just unveiled five new images to remind you that the film is still coming. And, oh yeah, while we’re on the subject, they’re also reminding us to go register at the website and Like the movie on Facebook. Each of the five images features a seal representing one of twelve Districts, which in the story comprise the dystopian future nation of Panem.

Directed by Gary Ross and based on a popular YA novel by Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games stars Jennifer Lawrence as tough 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who gets sent to the Capitol to compete for her district in a fight to the death against other teenagers. Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, and Lenny Kravitz also star. Check out the new posters after the jump.

Watch the video after the jump.
