Images aren’t the only hook of this elaborate and high-tech movie Web site.

In the film, Christie will be playing Commander Lyme, a military leader out of District 2 and former Hunger Games victor who joins Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), Peeta (Josh Hutchinson) and the rest of the rebellion against President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and the leaders of Panem.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 Teaser Poster Spreads Its Wings
The Mockingjay symbol of The Hunger Games franchise has morphed quite a bit since the film series began back in 2012.

Natalie Dormer Shaved Half Of Her Head For The Hunger Games: Mockingjay
Natalie Dormer has never been a woman who has trouble going for it. She’s done nudity, corsets and all sorts of general weirdness; so, it probably shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone that she’s willing to cut her hair for a role. In this case, she was apparently willing to shave her head, or at least half of it for both parts of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.
