The first official poster for the highly-anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ young adult book, The Hunger Games has been released by Lionsgate… and it’s not your parents one sheet.
The poster features the book’s ever famous motto as it’s tagline: “May the odds ever be in your favor”. Below the tagline is a mockingjay pin (a symbol of resistance against the oppressive Panem government in the book) on fire, but not in the usual way.
The film will be directed by Gary Ross (Pleasantville, Seabiscuit) and will revolve around a group of teens who are selected by lottery to fight one another to the death while it’s broadcast on television in a futuristic/dystopian America.
The film has a stacked ensemble cast which includes: Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, Elisabeth Banks as Effie Trinket, Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne, Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy, Stanley Tucci as Caeser Flickerman, Willow Shields as Primrose Everdeen, Donald Sutherland as President Snow, Toby Jones as Claudius Templesmith, Lenny Kravits as Cinna, and Wes Bentley as Seneca Crane.
