Exclusive animated poster of The Hunger Games has been released!

Take a look at the exclusive motion poster of The Hunger Games featuring a brand-new (and highly combustible) logo based on the story’s iconic mockingjay pin. The mockingjay is a creature that becomes a symbol for Katniss and the rebellion she inspires.

The Hunger Games is the film about Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old who lives in District 12, a poor area in post-apocalyptic America, who volunteers herself for the Hunger Games when her little sister?s name is called by random draw. The Games are nationally televised and feature 24 kids aged 12-18 battling to the death, with only one victor emerging alive.

Aiding and fighting Katniss along the way are a cast that includes Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Hutcherson, Stanley Tucci, Wes Bentley, Lenny Kravitz and Toby Jones.

“The Hunger Games”, which is to have no presence at Comic-Con, will be released on March 23, 2012.

Edit: I’ve just added the poster to our photo gallery, you can check it out here.
