Two New Images from THE HUNGER GAMES

     August 8, 2011


Lionsgate has released two more images from The Hunger Games.  As you can see above, one is another image of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) rocking a bow and arrow and the other is Josh Hutcherson doing his best job of convincing us all that he was miscast as Peeta.  I’m not exactly sure what image would best convey Peeta’s attitude.  Perhaps a shot of him being interviewed by Caesar Flickermam (Stanley Tucci)?  But who knows if that part of the book even made it into the movie, and that raises another point: I’ve been saying that The Hunger Games is the anti-Twilight. However, it’s possible that it’s been adapted to appeal more to a love-triangle aspect, which would be disappointing.  Katniss isn’t a character whose existence is defined by what hot guy is madly in love with her.  I don’t want to see a Bella Swan who knows archery.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  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.

    Hopefully they’re just releasing these images to appease the fans of the love triangle. From what I’ve read from Gary Ross, he seems very aware of what content is really important to fans and the fact that Collins herself helped write the script is encouraging too.

    According to The Hob as well as Tweets regarding the film, the interviews between Caeser Flickerman and ALL the tributes (including of course those of Katniss and Peeta) were filmed over the past week. I really don’t think especially with Suzanne Collins and Gary Ross having written the screenplay (remember, Billy Ray’s version was tossed) that The Hunger Games will play out like Twilight. In fact, I wonder if that was the reason Ray’s script was tossed; I can’t imagine that Suzanne Collins, who has taken an active role in the adaptation would let HER WORK turn into something it should not. Btw, I love the new photos…both Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson look great.

    Great over-analysis of two pictures out of context. I agree wholeheartedly about about miscasting, especially after seeing three pictures from the film. I can already tell Hutcherson is terrible. I don’t need to see a trailer , pictures are enough. And I am also in agreement about the screenplay. Haven’t read the script, but I can tell it’s awful. I hate this movie. Can’t wait to see it.

      You have really made my day! Matt has pissed me off to the point of no return with his constant over-opinionated articles that are degrading to (optimistic) film fans. I for one am exciting for The Hunger Games and I can’t wait!

        I KNOW! What is up with that. Its really getting on my nerves.

        I really hate it when people just throw their opinions around like we really care. Just deliver the news.
