New ‘Hunger Games’ Stills Show Katniss, Peeta and Gale! (PHOTOS)
The first official stills from the film have been released! While they only give a glimpse into the action that’s going to happen once the movie is released, surely they’ll be enough to keep the book series’ die-hard fans happy enough for a while.
In one shot, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Gale (Liam Hemsworth) are seen plotting some sort of strategy in the woods, while in another, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) is seen brooding outside of a pastry shop.
The movie series, slated by many as “the next Twilight,” will very likely turn its three stars into massive Hollywood actors — much like Twilight did for Robert Pattinson and crew. Lawrence, who’s the most well-known of the main three thanks to her critically acclaimed role in Winter’s Bones, told Entertainment Weekly of landing the role:
“I knew that as soon as I said yes, my life would change. And I walked around an entire day thinking ‘It’s not too late, I could still go back and do indies, I haven’t said yes yet, it’s not too late.’”
Games is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 23, 2012.
