As noted by Variety, the new photo gives a glimpse at the “18-year-old Snow, who is chosen to mentor Baird during the 10th Hunger Games — the highly publicized event in which teenagers are chosen via lottery to fight to the death. In the 2020 novel by Suzanne Collins, the unassuming Lucy Gray sparks everyone’s attention by singing during the reaping ceremony. With her talent and charisma, Snow believes he may be able to turn the odds in their favor to win the games.”
Zegler and Blyth both shared the first-look photo on Instagram writing, “Sneaky peak at our inconspicuous little movie about 2 totally chill birdwatchers with no emotional damage whatsoever…” Oscar winner Viola Davis was recently signed on for the role of game maker Volumnia Gaul. She joins an ensemble that includes Peter Dinklage as the unintentional creator of the Hunger Games, Casca Highbottom.

Francis Lawrence returns to the series, having directed the sequels Catching Fire and both parts of Mockingjay.
