These posters have been online for a month or more, but because I’m a serious slacker I haven’t posted them here at AATM yet. I love the design of these posters, and while we’ve seen these characters (and more) in the full-length trailer for The Hunger Games, these one-sheets (going L to R) for Cinna, Cato, Effie, Katniss, Gale, Peeta, Rue and Haymitch, show a more detailed glimpse of the heroes and villains we’ll see when The Hunger Games hits theaters on March 23, 2012.
Honestly, from what I’ve seen thus far, I like the way director Gary Ross and his crew have brought these memorable protangonists to life, with one exception: Haymitch. Perhaps I’ll change my mind when I see him on the big screen, but thus far – in the trailer and poster – I’m not a fan of the way Woody Harrelson is channeling the crusty old drunk, Haymitch Abernathy. Not. A. Fan.
What do YOU think? Do you like the way these characters are portrayed, or did the filmmakers miss the mark?
