Katniss Is Ready For Battle In New 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' Images

It's impossible to predict the future, but only an idiot would bet against The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 making a crap ton of money this fall. The first two Hunger Games movies made enough money to turn star Jennifer Lawrence into the Guinness world record holder as the highest-grossing action heroine of all time, and the third looks on track to be just as big if not bigger.

Especially since Lionsgate is not holding back on the marketing. Hot on the heels of an epic new trailer, we have several high-res stills, featuring Katniss, Gale (Liam Hemsworth), and more. See the new Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 images after the jump.

Gale appears to be playing a much more central role in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, after fretting over his pal Katniss from a distance in the last two movies. Meanwhile, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) is MIA because he's still in the clutches of the Capitol, led by the cruel President Snow (Donald Sutherland).

Cressida is among the more prominent new characters featured in the new film, and the new stills offer a much better look at Natalie Dormer's badass style. Her special job in the District 13 is shooting propaganda videos starring Katniss — though the heavy weaponry on display suggest she's just as good at shooting with a gun.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 opens November 21, 2014. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 opens November 20, 2015. Then the countdown to the inevitable Hunger Games remake / reboot / spinoff begins.

The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Danny Strong and Peter Craig and produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone. Lionsgate presents, a Color Force / Lionsgate production, a Francis Lawrence film.
