Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, here’s a new image from the highly-anticipated adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ “The Hunger Games.” The image shows Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) reading for the opening ceremonies by Cinna (Lenny Kravitz).
Here is what director Gary Ross had to say about the image in Entertainment Weekly:
“This is one of those moments where Cinna’s character syncs up with the creativity of our costume designer Judianna Makovsky,” says Ross. (Makovsky earned Oscar nominations for her work on Ross’ previous movies Pleasantville and Seabiscuit.) “What Cinna was trying to do was create something that came out of District 12, out of a coal mining world, with a fresh, bold look to it. So Judianna went to this wonderful black reflective material that glistened like coal or graphite and would obviously work well in the Tribute parade where Katniss becomes the Girl on Fire.”
“The Hunger Games” hits theaters on March 23rd.
