2012 is a year filled with highly-anticipated movies, but according to a recent poll conducted by MTV's NextMovie.com, the upcoming adaptation of The Hunger Games is the most anticipated movie of this year — above even The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 and The Avengers (really, the poll was ultimately between Breaking Dawn and The Hunger Games as a movie like The Dark Knight Rises didn't even place on the poll, but we digress).
With that in mind, Lionsgate has released several new photos for The Hunger Games which reveal lead character Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) sitting in a field with Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth, speaking into a microphone with Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) (likely during the Reaping), as well as another sitting photo that includes Peeta Mallark (Josh Hutcherson), Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson) and Cinna (Lenny Kravitz).
Based on the best-selling novel by Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games was adapted by Collins and screenwriter Billy Ray (State of Play), opens on March 23, 2012, and is directed by Gary Ross. The cast also includes Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickerman, Wes Bentley as Seneca Crane, Paula Malcomson as the mother to Katniss and Primrose and Donald Sutherland as President Snow.
