Check This Out: Fiery Motion Poster for 'Hunger Games' Materializes
May the odds be ever in your favor. Lionsgate has unleashed a pretty kick ass new motion poster for The Hunger Games adaptation in the works, starring Jennifer Lawrence & Josh Hutcherson, directed by Gary Ross. We got a first look reveal at Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen on an EW cover a few months ago, but we still haven't seen a trailer, although I have a feeling this is a sign of things soon to come. Yahoo revealed the new motion poster, which features Katniss' iconic mockingjay pin materializing out of fire. It's pretty cool to watch, though it doesn't show us anything new yet. I also like the little bit of music they used for it.
Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss, a 16-year-old living in the post-apocalyptic country of Panem. Every year, one boy and one girl are chosen from each of Panem's 12 districts to fight each other to the death.
The Hunger Games is both written and directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Gary Ross, director of Seabiscuit and Pleasantville previously, but also writer of Big, Mr. Baseball, Dave, Lassie, Pleasantville and Seabiscuit. It's adapted from Suzanne Collins' popular series of novels, first published in 2008. Lionsgate is bringing The Hunger Games to theaters everywhere starting March 23rd, 2012 next spring. Excited yet?
