A big name coming on board the next installment of the "Hunger Games" franchise is Julianne Moore, playing President Alma Coin. Lionsgate has released a couple of first images of Moore, here forgoing her usual red locks for something a bit more Jane Campion-like. One of the images has her seated next to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, who plays Plutarch Heavensby. Take a look, below.

A big name coming on board the next installment of the "Hunger Games" franchise is Julianne Moore, playing President Alma Coin. Lionsgate has released a couple of first images of Moore, here forgoing her usual red locks for something a bit more Jane Campion-like. One of the images has her seated next to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, who plays Plutarch Heavensby. Take a look, below. 

In "Mockingjay - Part 1," we find Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen -- the Girl On Fire who has just literally set fire to the Games matrix -- back in District 13. With the help of President Coin, Katniss rises to the occasion of being a symbol for Panem's revolution, fighting to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) as well as everyone else.

Thoughts on these first images of Moore? The film lands November 21.
