It’s been awhile since we’ve had any posts about The Hunger Games movie. The cast and crew are busy filming the first installment of a quadrilogy (Lionsgate announced in May the three novels would be split into four films) somewhere in Burke County, North Carolina, and one would think, with a release date of March 23, 2012, that we’d see a teaser trailer within the next two or three months. Despite the slow-going on the news, a motion poster for the movie was revealed (see below) today and the official Hunger Games movie website went online, complete with a countdown widget for fans who are ready to pee their britches with excitement.
As I mentioned before, The Hunger Games movie hits theaters on March 23, 2012 and stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne, Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy, Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket, Donald Sutherland as President Snow, Stanley Tucci as Caeser Flickerman and Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. The Hunger Games is directed by Gary Ross.
