In Which We Make A Terrible Pun

The First Poster for Mockingjay – Part 1 Is On Fi-yuh!

Hah. You thought I meant that it’s really good and interesting, when really it’s a relatively dull poster featuring the same flaming Mockingjay we’ve been seeing for two movies. Fooled you! I’ll see myself out before the tomatoes start flying.
