According to BadassDigest, the idea for the poster was inspired by the work of American artist, Kris Kuksi.
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. 
Fantastic Realism is the genre in which he works, and writer Jen Pappas has described Kuksi's style as “a study in timelessness and intricacies, reminiscent of lost civilizations, deities and ruins – perfectly preserved.” All of that says Panem to me, a civilization built on the ruins of an old one, using the debris of the old to make something new and strange and screwed up.
