Movie Preview: The Hunger Games Movie update

By Cher Cabula-Mendoza - Friday, January 20, 2012

A new poster has been released for the movie The Hunger Games. I’m sure by now you’ve also seen the trailers in cinemas or in YouTube. The poster once again shows Jennifer Laurence as Katniss Everdeen with her trusty bow taking a shot straight forward.


For those of you who haven’t read the book, The Hunger Games is the first part of a trilogy set in the dystopian future of what was once North America. People and areas have been designated into twelve district and every year, the capitol of Panem requires each district to produce 2 tributes to join in the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games arena is just basically a place where tributes fight for the right to survive, besting traps set by the capitol and killing off each other until just one remains. Enter our heroine Katniss Everdeen, she volunteers in the place of her sister when her name was drawn. All odds are against her while she tries to champion over the other tributes and conquer the arena.

The cast includes Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Wes Bentley, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson, Lenny Kravitz, Toby Jones, Donald Sutherland and many more. The movie is directed by Gary Ross.

Here’s a look at one of the costumes Katniss and Peeta will wear.


Just like in the book, the clothes take inspiration from the coal mining industry that District 12 is known for. I’m excited to see how Cinna will transform the outfit that will dub her the nickname “The Girl on Fire”. I’m hoping it will be spectacular.
