The seven new propaganda posters promoting The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 are all terrific, but the one-legged tattooed lumberjack is probably the most memorable:

Cats don't care that these children are forced to fight each other for others' amusement. They don't care about how cute Jennifer Lawrence is. They also don't care that you think Battle Royale was better (it was).
