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?
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
