Katniss Readies Her Bow in New Image from THE HUNGER GAMES

     November 8, 2011


I’m still a little surprised at how little we’ve seen so far from Gary Ross‘ adaptation of The Hunger Games.  We got some interesting posters a couple weeks ago, but with the holiday movie season about to go into overdrive, it’s the best window for a movie like Hunger Games to capture the attention of the holiday audience.  Instead, the latest image from the movie appeared in freaking Business Insider.  They’re covering the movie because they project it could make over $700 million due to the book’s devoted following and Lionsgate’s hope that their $80 million feature (the largest budget in the studio’s history) will translate into a major franchise.  The sequel, Catching Fire, is already set for November 22, 2013, but The Hunger Games has to succeed first.  Hopefully we’ll soon see more of the film than just “Katniss Everdeen uses a bow and arrow.”

Hit the jump to see another picture of Katniss Everdeen using a bow and arrow.  The Hunger Games opens March 23, 2012.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Hunger Games:

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.

    They’re kidding themselves if they think this franchise is even in the same league of Harry Pottter or Twilight, and they’re in for a rude awakening when they finally hit theaters.

    • waka! waka!

      no actually their not. wat does harry potter, twilight and he hunger games have in common – they were books with a massive built in fan base, maybe not on the same level as harry potter but on par with twilight. the film will probably achieve that and get numbers like the first twilight.

    The movie better be damn better than the books because I will not pay for a lousy movie. It better live up to its expectations

  • jewman

    the book has a large fan base? really? how many states in the country exactly? every single movie studio sells this things like everybody knows about it, like this are best-sellers loved by millions. I’ve never heard of this shit. And i’m an avid reader.

    I’m glad they’re not showing much… it keeps the anticipation going to keep everyone in the dark…

    I mean, look at Twilight. Summit has been freaking bombarding us with so much promo material that we don’t even have to watch the freakin’ thing! All the clips and trailers and spots already tell us what happens…

    So I hope they keep the mystery going! I know I’ll be there opening night =)

    Has anyone else noticed that her arrow has slipped off her hand? In order to aim properly, it’s supposed to be resting along the top side of her bow holding hand to give it support. If she lets go of the arrow, there’s no telling where that’s going!

    Fellmeister, there’s no sign (i.e. blur) that the arrow is falling down and away, so I’d guess that there’s an arrow rest on the bow itself. Using the hand as an arrow rest gets to be damned painful after a while. If Katniss has hunting experience and she’s as good with the bow as we all hope she is then it’s likely she would have a bow with a rest.
