Hunger Games Pictures

The Hunger Games

Hi, crew!  Hope you’ve all been having wonderful days since last we chatted.  I’ve been crazy busy- working, working on music for a new musical (more on that soon), and RL crap has been occupying my time.  BUT, I have had my ears open for any cool Hunger Games news. . .

If you don’t already know (how could you not) I love The Hunger Games books.  They’re not the best things I’ve ever read, but I was totally engrossed and I’ve recommended them to all my friends.  The world author Suzanne Collins created is so exciting.  I can’t wait for the film adaptation! Gah!  In the meantime, a bunch of new pics came out recently that I’m gaga for.  Pick up the latest issue of Vanity Fair for the complete series of pics from this shoot.  It looks really good.

How cute is the girl who’s playing Rue?  I just can’t.  You can check out most of the photos here on VF’s website.  Just be warned that the interactive bio feature on the cast photo has some mayjah spoilers, in case you don’t already know what happens to everybody.  Also, don’t hit me, but doesn’t this look eerily similar to the shoot they did for “Twilight?”  I feel like it’s in the same field and they’re wearing the same clothes.  Anyone else?

Also new to the HG website are striking cast posters.  The posters feature the first book’s main characters in profile.  I’m obsessed with them.  Woody Harrelson looks kind of dapper as mentor Haymitch Abernathy, right?

Jennifer Lawrence as "Katniss Everdeen"; Woody Harrelson as "Haymitch Abernathy"

Elizabeth Banks as "Effie Trinket"; Lenny Kravitz as "Cinna"

And I’m living for Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket.  She looks way fiercer than I pictured Effie (which was pretty damn fierce), and Lenny Kravitz as Cinna is adorbs.  Hard to believe this guy will be playing the mild mannered designer:

You can check out all of the character posters and stay updated on HG movie news at http://www.thehungergamesmovie.com . There’s some cool stuff on there.

Gah!  I’m loving these new pics.  They are getting me super jazzed for March 23 2012, when The Hunger Games hits theaters.  If you haven’t read them yet, what are you waiting for?  Crack a book open and join me in the fandom.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day! xx

A Look At April Cover Stars

So, I had such a good time putting together the last magazine cover post, I thought I’d give it another go for spring!  This is my favorite time for covers because there’s so much color and skin after the dark winter months.  Here’s a gander at some of my favorites -and some that made me say, “What?!  WHY?!”

Zooey Deschanel on Lucky:

I love this!  Zooey Deschanel is, like, the perfect indie ingenue here (and everywhere), and I’m living for her dress.  I wish I could pull off cutie-pie looks like this.

Kate Winslet on UK Vogue:

She is channeling Brigitte Nielsen with that platinum cropped ‘do.  The newly single mom looks better than ever.

Gucci Mane on The Source:

I saw this at the store and was like, “Is that an ice cream cone on his face?”  I’m still not sure (I found out the other day that I need glasses).  Amazing!

Britney Spears and Madonna on Out:

Rumor has it that the folks over at Out Magazine didn’t trust Brit Brit to sell enough magazines, so they brought out The Queen to ensure a hot issue.  I’m not sure that’s true, but I’m happy that we get these two ferosh covers.  I forgot how beautiful young Madonna was.  Le Sigh.

Rihanna on Vogue:

Art History 101:  I’m not a fan of RiRi’s “Bobo the Clown” orange locks, but this photo is gorge McGeorge.  Anyone else seeing Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus” up in here?  Get that woman a big ass seashell, STAT.

Edward Cull- er, I mean Robert Pattinson on Vanity Fair:


Why, Rob, why?  Ugh.  Is that a belt in your jeans?  What are you, 50?!  Why are your fingernails so long?  Don’t tell me it’s for the guitar.  They make picks for that.  And isn’t your movie, Water for Elephants, about an . . . elephant?  Wtf’s up with the ‘gator?  An elephant is probably too literal.  Whatever.  I’ll just look into your eyes and block it all out. . .

Join me, won’t you, in snagging some of these bad boys before they leave newsstands?  We can discuss what in the world is on Gucci Mane’s face.  Hope you’re all having a great “Hump Day!”  xx
