Finally Jennifer Lawrence removed from Israeli Hunger Games posters


Hunger GamesThe Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 has released on Nov. 20 in movie theater all around the world but some Israeli metropolis have no appetite for the newest Hunger Games promotional posters. So, the posters have been removed from marketing materials in Jerusalem and some other territories to keep away from offending devout patrons.

The Oscar-winning actress, Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, is seen in full Girl on Fire get-up, complete with bow and arrow and it has been replaced with a mockingjay in a handful of suburbs across the country, including Bnei Brak and Jerusalem.

A representative from the movie’s Israeli PR firm said, “We discovered that public posters with the image of a female are often torn down in Jerusalem, while Bnei Brak does not allow posters with female images.”

Liron Suissa, vice president of marketing at Nur Star Media, said, “Unfortunately we are subject to unofficial coercion that forces us to be more careful. We have had endless vandalisation and clients prefer not to take the chance.

He added, “We allow everything but we recommend hanging another visual when necessary. The decision is the client’s.”

The Bnei Brak town council says that a provision impedes hanging posters of women “that might incite the feelings of the city’s residents,” while the Jerusalem town council said it has no such abridgement and it could be regard as offensive to its religious population.

Perhaps, the original poster can be seen in other, less densely populated Israeli cities.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” is expected to make $300m in the opening week, pursuant to movie analysts. But the performance of France film’s box-office is weaker than Mockingjay – Part 1.

The Oscar-winning actress, Lawrence, owes a large part of her fame to Katniss, the plucky protagonist plays again in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. She will next be seen in Miracle Mop biopic Joy from American Hustle director David O Russell.
