It might be gloomy, cloudy weather and raining cats and dogs outside right now, we might be four days away from the end of the world, and my birthday certainly isn’t today (it’s July 12, if you want to get me a present!), but I’ll be damned if today isn’t looking up! Why? Because today fans of The Hunger Games get their first look at Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) as Katniss Everdeen, courtesy of the fine folks at Entertainment Weekly.
My first impression? It’s feeble, but all I can say is awesome. She looks absolutely awesome.
My second impression? Those Hunger Games “fans” who scharted on Lawrence’s post-Oscar casting can now officially suck it. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then EW’s cover says FU to her detractors a thousand times in every conceivable tongue. Now, as Emma pointed out yesterday, as soon as we learn who will play Cinna and who will play President Snow, all will be well in the world. Let’s just hope it happens before May 21!
