Katniss Everdeen's Mockingjay pin is the focus of the first Hunger Games poster
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The “hunger” for more HUNGER GAMES news is going strong and Lionsgate is going to capitalize on every ounce of publicity they can over the next eight months. We got some very early shots of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen a while back and now we get a “motion poster”, which is basically a fancy gif image. The focus of the poster is the pin/broach (what’s the difference?) that Katniss Everdeen got from one of her school friends. Those familiar with the books remember that Katniss chose this as her trinket to remind her of her home town. Because when you’re running for your life and being hunted by cruel men, it’s always nice to have something to remind you that there are other people that are happy and safe.
THE HUNGER GAMES has a great cast that includes Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Donald Sutherland, Lenny Kravitz, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Will Bentley and Elizabeth Banks. Gary Ross is directing the film that hits theaters on March 23rd, 2012.
