Its hard to describe why Suzanne Collin's novel The Hunger Games is so appealing, especially as how its been marketed as the new Twilight. Before I sat down & read the book I didn't expect too much, but to be frank its a excellent book & perfect for adaption. Elizabeth Banks recently gave an update on the production: "We’ve got a little under a month left. It’s very exciting. We’re really making a provocative movie that’s also highly entertaining. It’s gonna be fun. It’s really great to make something that you know people are excited about and also that you know is gonna deliver. I really think fans are gonna love it." Today Lionsgate have released two more images showing Katniss [Jennifer Lawrence] and Peeta [Josh Hutcherson] who appear to already be in the arena fighting for survival. Hit the jump to check it out.
Directed by Gary Ross The Hunger Games chronicles a dystopic Capitol which requires its twelve subjugated districts to pay tribute in the form of a teenage boy and girl, forced to participate in the annual "Hunger Games," a fight-to-the-death live televised event. Thanks to Comingsoon.net for the images. The movie arrives March 23rd 2012.
