Over 35 New Images from THE HUNGER GAMES [Updated with 3 More Images]

     February 29, 2012


A slew of new images from the highly anticipated adaptation of The Hunger Games have gone online. I’ve been extremely pleased with all the trailers thus far, and I can’t wait to see how director Gary Ross takes on the material. I think he’s assembled a terrific cast and the book should make for quite an entertaining moviegoing experience. For the uninitiated, The Hunger Games takes place in the post-apocalyptic country of Panem. As a means of reminding Panem’s 12 districts that the country’s government holds all the power, one teenage boy and one teenage girl are randomly selected from each district to participate in a televised fight to the death called “The Hunger Games.” If you’re wary of spoilers, these new images only seem to be from the first half of the movie. Most of them are from the scenes that take place in the Capitol (complete with the kooky-lookin’ futuristic costumes and Josh Hutcherson‘s Peeta practicing his camouflage), with a few looks at Katniss’s life in District 12.

Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, and Donald Sutherland. The Hunger Games opens on March 23rd. [Update: We've added three more images after the jump.]

Here’s the synopsis for The Hunger Games:

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing 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. THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.

    This movie has peaked my curiosity just because it looks visually odd … haven’t read the books.

  • BobMann

    I know the clothes are supposed to be bizzare.
    But that aspect could have been executed a lot better than this.
    The costume designs look horrible
    same goes for the sets.

    • Jordan

      The way they designed the set and clothing are exactly as they described in the book…If you haven’t read it then shame on you lol, great book!! And gonna make an even better movie!! Cant wait

      • Blob

        Jordan. You’re off your rocker – this looks NOTHING like the way things were described in the books, not even an iota. The casting is way, way off and the costumes look like Burton clown rejects. Have you even read the books?

    • Alex–

      It’s supposed to look horrible, the capitol citizens are fashionable but only in their perverted eyes not ours.

    Eck! I’ll pass.

  • Blob

    I’m sorry, but the casting for this looks completely and utterly off. For starving people, they sure do look…um…plump and muscular. That’s not how they were described in the book.

    And what’s up with the zany color scheme? This looks more like a sequel to Tim Burton’s Willy Wonka than anything even remotely resembling the books. Seriously.

    @Blob, No, you’re right, next time they should hire anorexic’s and starving people to go for that real authentic look. Or maybe they should use million dollar CGI to shed a few pounds off some twelve year olds.


    And the color scheme is awesome.

    • Dogg

      Uh, no, you just have your actors slim down and use makeup to make them look gaunt the same way they’ve been doing forever. These look like kids rounded up from the nearest mall.

      • Adrian

        No actor should be required to physically change themselves in such a way dangerous to their health, especially children.

      • Megan

        You are exactly right, and to the person who said “no actor should be required to physically change themselves” you are so wrong. First of all, to the play a role required to be extremely thin, if you are not, you should be required to lose a lot of weight. Like for example, in the Black Swan, a masterpiece movie, Natalie Portman had to lose 40 pounds in order to play the part of the ballerina, because they are generally anorexic and extremely skinny to the point where seeing their rib cage isn’t even an option it’s just there..just because they are a little bit younger does not change anything, they are still actors and are required to FIT the part. They completely messed up with the casting. And as for the sets and costumes it’s just way too off. That was such a beautiful book and I feel as though this movie is going to ruin it, just like they did with other wonderful books. -___- if they really wanted to put this movie to the best it can, they should of tried a little harder with everything. Let’s just hope the actors can actually act. All I have to say

  • Kottz

    The books described the citizens of Panem as having ridiculous fashions that totally clashed with the poor districts. The citizens used flamboyantly ridiculous styles and colors and bodily changes that the author used to show just how out of touch they were with the very “human” and down-to-earth citizens of the twelve districts. The Panem citizens were so rich and care-free that they were more obsessed with fashion than even actually eating food for health purposes.

    Stupid movie for little girls.

    • Lauren

      How is this movie for girls in any way? I mean if you think it’s stupid I’m fine with that, I mean everyone has their own opinions, but it’s absolutely not a girl book. It’s about 24 kids that get thrown into an arena against their will and are forced to murder one another until one kid lives while the entire country is forced to watch. Doesn’t sound very Girly to me.

  • countfosco

    Katniss hunted for food and was physically fit.
    Peeta was a baker’s son.
    Haymitch was a games winner.
    Effie was from the Capitol.
    Many of the other tributes were careers which means they come from wealthy families or were traied by their districts.

    The shots of the citizens of district 12 show thin, sickly people.

    The casting is fine.

  • RebeccaB.

    Um, whoever said this will be girly, you clearly and obviously haven’t read the books. A movie where 24 teenagers are trapped in an outdoor arena to fight to the death where only 1 survives. A whole country forced to watch—the series itself gets more violent each book. Especially the last book, where it snowed and from explosions people are limbless and blood decorates the snow. Muttated animals, people being set limb from limb, arrows going through people, brainwashing, and attempted murder. An assassination mission.

    Yes, tragically girly, right?

    First of all, the clothes are fine. If you read the books, the Capitol people cared about nothing but their fashion. I feel like they held back in the movie. I expected it to be outrageous. Secondly, this movie is not girl at all, and whoever said that obviously didn’t read the books. The only thing that’s “girlie” is the romance part, but that’s a small part in the book. Still, the love interests just allowed us to feel for a lonely girl who was forced to fight and had no one to depend on except Peeta (after she realized he was actually on her side).
