Capital Couture is giving us more eye candy in the form of Gale Hawthorne, take a look at his Catching Fire portrait poster here!

Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) is only of Katniss’ best friends and was pivotal in her survival as a child trying to support a family. When she comes back from the 74th Hunger Games his happiness to see her alive is dampened by her portrayal of romance with Peeta for the Capitol. Although they remain friends there’s a clear strain as Katniss can’t seem to sort out her feelings for either boy. Unfortunately, it’s this knowledge that President Snow uses against Katniss.


Gale’s portrait was released on BuzzSugar.

So far Lionsgate has released the first look at Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) and Caesar Flickerman (Stanley Tucci). They also released Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson) with a surprisingly sober tone, as well as Cinna (Lenny Kravitz) in a new leather look. Of course we can’t forget the first look at Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in her wedding gown. Yesterday we got our first look at a sharply dressed Beetee (Jeffrey Wright) and fierce looking Johanna Mason (Jena Malone). Earlier today Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) was released in what looks like a matching outfit to Katniss’.

The next portrait will be released at 6 p.m. EST. The clue for the next portrait is: “He’s the Catch Of The Capitol”

      I just had a fangirl moment.

    • Gary65

      Between him and Plutarch, I may pass out from the joy.

    Gale kind of looks like he doesn’t want to be there. Its like he is waiting to get out of that chair. Good poster for his character. So glad they kept his clothes.

    • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

      I think there’s a little sadness in his eyes as well.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Krys831 Krystol Grayson

    He isn’t a Victor… why does he have a rose? I have many more questions, but most of them are just me picking at the movies, so I’ll stick with the rose for now.

    • Plat

      Nobody ever said only tributes would have roses. We’ll figure out why they have them once we get more pictures.

  • Crazy-Eight23

    Have you noticed Gale and Katniss have the same chair?

    • Gary65

      All the tributes had that chair(including Peeta). But Katniss was the only one who didn’t sit in it.

  • thethirdfloorcorridor

    Can we talk about how we’d thought it’d only be the tributes holding roses, but Gale is included with one? Also, why does it look like the rose is photoshopped in?

    • Plat

      Maybe it’s people on Snow’s shit-list? Who knows.

    • LooKat

      You are right. It definitely looks photoshopped.

  • heartgilly

    he shouldnt have a flower because he isnt a tribute…. why?

    • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

      The flower is an indirect representation of President Snow. Even if he isn’t a Tribute, Snow had a detrimental influence in the course his life took because of his relationship and closeness to Katniss.

      • Gary65

        But then shouldn’t Haymitch have a rose? Snow devastated his life.

        • Plat

          But that isn’t as relevant to the story right now than Katniss and companie’s.

          • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

            Exactly, the context of the CF plot counts.

          • Gary65

            I sincerely hope that opinion isn’t reflected in the movie. Haymitch’s story is really expanded in CF. I’d be so disappointed if they cut all that out in favour of more Katniss. Whether it’s the drinking scene or the scene where they watch Haymitch’s Games, I’d really miss them.

          • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

            I think that what Plat means is that Haymitch has more backstory than actual plot on CF. I hope they don’t cut it all either. I doubt they would. I think the people with the flowers are the ones that are going to mainly carry the story. The ones under the direct persecution of Snow. Even though Haymitch is still controlled and persecuted by Snow, his struggle is more internal than visual in terms of CF’s plot.

            From another perspective, these portraits were done by the Capitol. The Capitol put those roses there on those specific people. We know there’s a pattern, even though we haven’t exactly figured it out.

        • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

          I didn’t mean it that way. Snow has affected most characters in the book. But Haymitch, in Catching Fire, is part of the prep team. Because of his hidden agenda, he is only viewed as such by the Capitol and not as a threat to the Capitol or as a rebel.

  • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

    Interesting how the Tributes (and Gale) have been the ones looking directly at the camera. Nice little touch of defiance.

    • http://www.facebook.com/hannah.christian Hannah Christian

      Gale actually isn’t looking at the camera if you look closely. his eyes are focused off to the side.

      • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

        I disagree. I think there’s a sad, faraway look to his eyes (rather than defiant), though.

        • http://www.facebook.com/hannah.christian Hannah Christian

          yeah, exactly. and if you look at the left (his right eye) its clearly focused off to the side, glare or no glare.

          • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

            Unfocused direction is part of a faraway look. I tend to that a lot. You are looking but your are not REALLY looking. I still think he think he is looking at the direction of the camera, but his mind has drift off somewhere else.

      • RabbitRabbit

        I think you’re deducing that by mistaking the glare as the whites of his eyes. Look at the right corner of his right eye (his left eye if you want to get technical) to measure where his pupil starts and where he is staring.

  • Gary65

    Well that kills the Rose=Tribute theory. Maybe it’s people being abused by the Capitol. All the people holding roses are currently being controlled by Snow. Can’t really think of anything else that connects Gale, Katniss, Peeta, Beetee & Johanna but doesn’t include Haymitch or Cinna. The true test will be whether or not Plutarch has a rose.

    • RabbitRabbit

      Remember that version of the script where they were going to have Gale sneak onto the train and go to the capitol with Katnis and Peeta. Maybe they’re doing that for this film.
      Hope not, but that’s the first thing that went through my head.

      • RabbitRabbit

        Or they’re just f*cking with us

      • xosnowangel

        omg that better not happen

      • Gary65

        Me too but there’s no way that’ll happen this time. If he sneaks into the Capitol, [SPOILER] he won’t be in District 12 to lead all its citizens to 13 when teh firebombing starts. That’s the whole climax of the book.

  • ravenclaw1991

    I never liked Gale much. This is a great portrait though.

  • MirrorWolf


  • Kat

    Of course they’re going to have Katniss’ cousin!

    • http://www.facebook.com/steph.a.lowry Steph A. Lowry

      He’s not her cousin. Didn’t you read the books? Gale is her best friend and hunting partner.

      • http://www.facebook.com/hannah.christian Hannah Christian

        Didn’t you read the books? he has to act like her cousin so people don’t think they’re romantically involved.

        • Boywiththebread

          Guys…….it’s a joke DUHHHHHH

  • Anon
  • Ellie

    What’s happenin’, hot stuff?

    Sorry, sometimes I can’t control myself.

  • WhatTheGrace

    The portrait looks great but i don’t get why he’s included in this – he had a poster in The Hunger Games so i guess it makes sense.

    It’s so weird, i never liked Gale in the books very much but Liam Hemsworth’s portrayal of him made me like his character a lot more. In the few scenes that he was in (where he spoke) he seemed more likable.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1045615098 Riana-Tiana Menezes

      Gale is included in this because he is one of the main and most important characters in this series. There would’ve been an outcry if he wasn’t included.

  • katnisslovescheesebread

    sexy af oh

  • Sarah

    at first i thought the rose was a marshmallow ahahaha

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1045615098 Riana-Tiana Menezes

      Imagine if he was pointing it up, towards the ‘fire’ logo. Haha

  • Jill

    I had to scroll down the comments before I realized he was not ready to roast a marshmallow, woops.
