THE HUNGER GAMES photo shows Katniss taking aim
Here is a new image from Gary Ross‘ adaptation of The Hunger Games. The picture shows Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) readying her bow. The movie is expected to make $700 million at the box office according to Business Insider, so it's no surprise that the sequel Catching Fire, is already set for November 22, 2013.
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
The Hunger Games is scheduled for release on March 23, 2012.
