Hunger Games character posters revealed

IT MAY seem like an age until it’s released, so to satisfy fans of The Hunger Games, a batch of character posters have been revealed.

Based on Suzanne Collins’ hit novel, it’s set in a not-too-distant future where the US has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts.

Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch.

When 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen’s young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district’s female representative, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) volunteers to take her place.

She and her male counterpart, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.

Directed by Gary Ross (Sea Biscuit, Pleasantville), The Hunger Games also stars Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci, Elizabeth Banks and Toby Jones.

The Hunger Games is released in UK cinemas on March 23, 2012.

Check out the new character posters below – beginning with main star Katniss Everdeen.
