Now take a look at this! An incredibly epic, Baroque-style IMAX poster for Hunger Games: Catching Fire has been released and I tell you it’s freaking gorgeous! Inspired by the work of artist Kris Kuksi, this image is intricate in its detail. See for yourselves below! (via BadassDigest.com)
The image has been given a blessing by no less than Guillermo del Toro, describing Kuksi’s work in a statement:
Kris Kuksi obsessively arranges characters and architecture in asymmetric compositions with an exquisite sense of drama. Instead of stones and shells he uses screaming plastic soldiers, miniature engine blocks, towering spires and assorted debris to form his landscapes.The political, spiritual and material conflict within these shrines is enacted under the calm gaze of remote deities and august statuary. Kuksi manages to evoke, at once, a sanctum and a mausoleum for our suffocated spirit.
I can’t wait to watch this on IMAX, hoping that this poster will be given out to those who will attend the special IMAX screenings! The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens on 22 November 2013.
