Yesterday we had the cover image of Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in ‘The Hunger Games’. Today we’ve got even more pics and another great look at Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen.
Admittedly, I’ve never read the books, just the news that we’ve been posting on the movies. I might not be a die hard fan or anything like that, but the casting and storyline definitely have me interested!
Here’s the official plot:
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
