The World Will Be Watching: Final 'The Hunger Games' Poster Lands
The World Will Be Watching. I'm not sure why they ditched the more memorable "May the odds be ever in your favor" tagline (correction: I do know - "the world!", I'm just asking rhetorically), but this still looks good. Lionsgate has unveiled via Huffington Post the "final" official poster for The Hunger Games movie, starring Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, seen taking aim with her bow on this poster. I prefer the other arena poster just a bit more, as this one is just her face with some orange tints and that's it. Where's imagery that represents this entire story? It's not as interesting as the arena, but that's just me. See it in full below!
(This was posted in low resolution by Huffington, so this version is all we've got for now, we'll update 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 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 have a lot of PR to do in Europe/Skandinavia: everyone I have talked to about this movie/franchise does not know of it or the books. Good poster for a change 🙂

... lame poster. The previous one was awesome and they should've stick to it. This one reminds me of Tomb Raider Legend though...

This Poster is perfectly fine, she's "Katniss, the girl on fire." Which this poster clearly shows, you all need to calm down.

Bad poster, but the trailer and last poster look pretty cool so I'm not turned off. Just strange that in such a competitive field, like film/advertisement, we still see stuff like this. Theres no substance to it

I think they are trying to sell the film on how absolutely beautiful Jennifer Lawrence is.

I'm dissapointed that the poster is such a close up. Saying that, I still cant wait for the movie
