I can’t, can’t, CAN’T WAIT for The Hunger Games to be released in theaters March 2012! I have read that Gary Ross, the director of the first film of the trilogy, is a big fan of the books and that he truly wants the movie to be just as good as the book – to have the viewers of the movie feel the same way they felt while reading the books.
I just saw that 8 new character posters for the movie were released, making this girl right here even more excited for the movie! And possibly tempting me to read the books again! I think the casting choices were excellent! The poster collection includes some of your favorite citizens of Panem: Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, Elizabeth Banks as Effie, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, Amandla Stenberg as Rue, Liam Hemsworth as Gale, Woody Harrelson as Haymitch, Alexander Ludwig as Cato, and Lenny Kravits as Cinna.
And if you want a lil’ additional Panem fun, register at www.thecapitol.pn to be assigned a district and receive the latest announcements from The Capitol.
Have you read the books? What are your thoughts on the character casting?
