Official Arena Poster for Gary Ross' 'The Hunger Games' Revealed!
The world will be watching. After revealing 100 different pieces all over the internet, one fan has finished the puzzle to debut the official poster for Lionsgate's The Hunger Games. The online game, linked to today being 100 days from release, started this morning and didn't take too long to complete, even with 100 scattered pieces. Using the tag #HunerGames100 on twitter, fans had to put together all of the pieces of the puzzle. Thanks to a tweet by @johnshoward we can now see the completed poster, with all 100 pieces in place, and it's everything you'd expect an official Hunger Games poster to look like - dark, flaming and epic.
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. Josh Hutcherson plays Peeta, the boy chosen from District 12 for the Hunger Games with Katniss.
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 Hunger Games to theaters everywhere March 23rd, 2012. May the odds be ever in your favor.

They couldn't over hype this mediocre looking film anymore than they are - they started desperate, where's it going to end?

It's called catering to the fanbase. You may think the film looks mediocre, but the book series is a phenomenon in the publishing world and its fans hang off of every scrap of information about the movie. Lionsgate is just keeping them occupied until release day. It's smart for the studio to be in touch with the film's invested audience - not desperate.

No, he's right. It's desperate...

NO equustel is right. The book series is HUGE and for the studios to play/cater to a set of already invested fan base is an extremely smart idea for them. Not inly that but if they do stick to the storyline and Not edit so much out of it then it has the potential to be an extremely huge cinematic phenomenon.

Its one of those things where if you haven't read the book it doesn't look that great but if you've read the book it LOOKS FREAKING AMAZING. 🙂
