The newest poster (scroll down) for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" was released Tuesday, a powerful image that depicts heroine Katniss Everdeen ascending a cliff into the heavens, wing-shaped clouds behind her.

It's a striking, almost hopeful look for the character, in stark contrast to the poster's morose tagline: "The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand." That mindset consumes Katniss for much of "Catching Fire," as she must return to the arena to once again fight to the death against fellow victors from the rest of Panem's districts, all overseen by the calculating President Snow.

But as the poster suggests, Katniss is able to rise above her troubles, and "Catching Fire" sets in motion her transition from survivor to hero. The image is a nice tease of what's to come -- those Mockingjay-esque clouds and Katniss's almost messianic pose are no coincidence -- as the "Hunger Games" series continues. We'll see how it all plays out when "Catching Fire" enters the arena on November 22.
