I can’t, I can’t, I CAN’T WAIT for The Hunger Games to be released in theaters next March! 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 watching the books. (Hopefully that means that there will be no big changes.)
I also believe the casting to be superb — I can really picture Jennifer Lawrence kicking butt as Katniss, and think that Elizabeth Banks playing the role of Effie and Woody Harrelson as Haymitch were excellent choices.
Today, 8 new character posters for the movie were released, making this fan even more excited for the movie and tempting me to read the books again.
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:
Lenny Kravitz as Cinna:
Anybody else as excited for The Hunger Games movie as I am? Are you Team Peeta or Team Gale? 😛
Via Geek Tyrant.
Katniss was crappy to him but I try to remember that I was a jerk at that age too….
Ahhh, Love it!! Can’t wait! Totally Team Peeta-who couldn’t love the boy with the bread?
I’m so excited to see how these books will play out on film. I just don’t think anyone else in my group of friends has read the books, so I might have to go solo to the midnight showing. Team Peeta all the way!
I’m SO SO excited! Can’t wait! 🙂
I’m team Peeta, but that Gale might change my mind. Ha. Not really, but he is nice on the eyes. Also, I am quite excited about Woody Harrelson as Haymitch, but not sure about Lenny Kravitz.
TEAM PEETA! OMG for some reason I thought it wasn’t coming out until May! I am beyond excited I only have to wait until the end of March 🙂
P.S. For some reason I imagined Haymitch as a big burly dude, but I love Woody Harrelson so I’m trying to embrace it.
Hmmm.. I haven’t read these yet… I finish the last book in my current series this week… Guess I found my new one!
It’s premiering on my birthday!!!! TEAM PEETA ALL THE WAY!!!! I’m so excited if you couldn’t tell…….
Excited! 😀 I’m a huge Peeta fan, but if I’m perfectly honest, I don’t think Katniss deserves him. As for the casting, I think most of it sounds great, but I need to wrap my mind around Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. I didn’t see that one coming.
Holy mackerel Lenny Kravitz? How fantastic!
I agree that the character choices for Effie and Haymitch are perfection! They are going to be so good 🙂 Where did Lenny Kravitz come from?!
Peeeeta! Love him 🙂
Ahh – I can’t wait either! I got turned onto the Hunger Games during my pregnancy and polished off all three books in one week!
cannot wait for hunger games! oh, and Team Peeta!!!
Team Gale!!! I like them bad. =)
I’m with you! Team Gale!

Team Peeta! The casting looks great 😀 now to figure out where i stuck that third book….
