Promotion is beginning to heat up for the big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ popular book series THE HUNGER GAMES. Lots of new pictures and posters have been released thanks to Entertainment Weekly as well as a new photo that you can view below. The picture, pulled from THE HUNGER GAMES Official Facebook Page features the character Gale (Liam Hemsworth) as he attends the reaping. The reaping is the event in the novel where districts pull a name of a male and female to participate in the deadly hunger games. In the picture in the bottom right you can get a glimpse of part of the costume design for what I assume are the Peacekeepers.
THE HUNGER GAMES follows Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) as she is thrust into a deadly annual competition called The Hunger Games. In the dystopian future the games are punishment for a revolution mounted by the 13 districts (12 after the 13th is destroyed) against the Capitol. The games feature a fight to the death in which only one person is allowed to survive. The prize is enormous wealth and fame for the winner and their family.
THE HUNGER GAMES opens on March 23, 2012.
What do you think of the new photo from the film?
