The Hunger Games

Time to start the District Wars! Lionsgate has unveiled the first five Districts from The Hunger Games adaptation, written & directed by Gary Ross starring Jennifer Lawrence, in a future where the Capitol rules over 12 districts in a place known as Panem. These posters are part of the ongoing viral (website here) and are only the first of many, as we have all 12 districts to name. They've revealed Districts: 2-Masonry, 7-Lumber, 8-Textiles, 9-Grain, and 12-Mining, the District Katniss is from. Each one is responsible for a certain job, and each one is represented in their own way leading up to the Hunger Games. Check 'em out!

As you can see, they say "Like Your District Immediately" as they come straight from Facebook. If you click on whichever district is your favorite below, you'll be taken to the Facebook page for that District to like it. Glad to see some updates on this viral, as that teaser trailer wasn't much. Watch the latest official trailer.

Update: You can find all 12 banners for the various districts of Panem in full right here. The original five:

The Hunger Games - District 2The Hunger Games - District 7
The Hunger Games - District 8The Hunger Games - District 9
The Hunger Games - District 12

I believe more Districts will be unveiled as they fill up with candidates on the viral site at thecapitol.pn - you can see the Processing Queue filling up (oh, and the Capitol symbol), so stay tuned for more updates.

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?
