"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" unveils Panem propaganda posters

Lionsgate

The next film in "The Hunger Games" saga won't hit theaters until November, but fans just got a sneak peek at what's in store via a new crop of promotional posters for "Mockingjay - Part 1."

This time, there's no Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) or other tributes in sight. After sparking rebellion against the Capitol, you can't blame President Snow for wanting to keep them out of the public eye.

Instead, Panem is giving its propaganda a different sort of spin -- highlighting what it calls "District Heroes" from the different regions of the country. These men and women are the real heroes, the posters imply -- not "The Girl on Fire" or "The Boy with the Bread."

"Today we celebrate the proud men and women who live and breathe their districts," Snow says on TheCapitol.pn website. "Today we are one Panem."

The posters are sleek and highly-stylized, but will that be enough to satisfy those living in the Districts? (As you can probably guess, and fans of the books already know -- it's not.)

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" opens in theaters Nov. 21. Check out the posters below, with descriptions from the Capitol of each of the "heroes" being highlighted.

District 3 (Technology): "After shorting out, then quickly repairing District 3's mainframe at the age of nine, Fibre Bissette, 32, has proven her fearlessness in the face of any challenge."
