So what do you think?
I was really excited about Jennifer Lawrence getting cast in the role because I loved her in Winter’s Bone so much, and this cover just reaffirmed my excitement. Now I just want to see her in action.
In case you’re wondering, the movie is scheduled to be released on March 23, 2012. Check out the cover below.
Oh and I’m guessing you already know this, but in case you don’t, The Hunger Games is the first book in the famous dystopian series by Suzanne Collins.
Book synopsis: In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love
