The Hunger Games Poster Revealed
Posted 07.19.11 by Chris
With a plot about 12 boys and girls who are chosen to participate in a fight-to-the-death battle with each other, The Hunger Games promises to be unlike anything moviegoers have seen before.
And now, we have a poster from The Hunger Games unlike any poster we've ever seen before.
The studio has released a motion, that's right a motion, teaser poster for the movie adaption of The Hunger Games, based on the young adult books by Suzanne Collins.
Fans of the book will immediately identify the symbol in the poster, the mockingjay, the pin Katniss Everdeen wears to the Hunger Games and the symbol that later goes on to become...well, fans of the book know.
The poster also has a countdown clock to the movie's March 23 premiere. The Hunger Games should get a lot of credit for a unique approach to a teaser trailer. While the poster doesn't show us what the movie will look like, it does give us a sense of the ambition behind the four-part movie series (like Harry Potter and Twilight, the last book in The Hunger Games trilogy, Mockingjay, will be broken up into two movies).
The cast of The Hunger Games includes Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen), Woody Harrelson (Haymith Abernathy), Stanley Tucci (Caesar Flickerman), Wes Bentley (Seneca Crane), Elizabeth Banks (Effie Trinket), Lenny Kravitz (Cinna) Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark), Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne), Willow Shield (Primrose), Paula Malcomson (mother to Katniss and Primrose), and Donald Sutherland (President Snow). Garry Ross is directing.
