Eight Profile Character Posters from 'The Hunger Games' Revealed!
Time to meet the cast! Lionsgate has unveiled a series of eight brand new character posters for Gary Ross' adaptation of The Hunger Games, each featuring a profile shot of one of the eight primary characters in the movie. As we've only seen a handful of photos before and a short teaser, this is our very first look at a few people: Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket (via EW), Woody Harrelson as Haymitch (via IGN) and Lenny Kravitz as Cinna (via Fandango), Katniss' stylist at the Capitol. We've got all eight grouped below, as this is a great poster set, albeit very basic (black backgrounds, nothing but the logo). See them all below!
Katniss is the only one facing right; and I kept both Effie and Cinna last, because they're both so colorful and striking in comparison, but that's exactly how Panem is. Which character is your favorite from these?
Click on any of the posters above to be taken to the original source for high res versions of any of them. With these posters unveiled, we expect to see a new trailer and more Hunger Games marketing coming this fall.
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 their 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?

Holy crap. They all look fabulous and totally in-character. *approved*!

Woody Harrelson with hair... Can't believe it... I don't like Cato's hair... Thought it would look more royal-ish or upper class. And I hate Effie... Well, the actress for Effie. Favourites are Katniss, Peeta, Rue, Haymitch atm.

My favorite character out of thoose pictures are Rue, Cinna, Katniss and Peeta. They all look awesome, but it was those pictures that gave me the best impression. It was so freaky when I saw that picture of Peeta for the first time, it is exactly how I pictured Peeta in my mind...

I like everyone but Cinna. But that's just because I have a paranoid Cinna-must-look-exactly-as-I-imagined-him thing going on, so ignore me.

Ha, I feel the same way about Cinna. No actor could ever match my vision of him. Ah well..

I'm not sure what to think about Haymitch with the long hair, it's going to take time to get used to, otherwise all of them looks more or less how I imagined them.
