I spent the weekend re-reading Catching Fire in anticipation of the upcoming movie. There is so much going on in the book that it will be interesting to see what plot points are incorporated into the movie and what points are dropped. I am sure most of the movie will center on the games.
Here are some photos from the upcoming movie and character posters that were released.
Elizabeth Banks is Effie Trinket and Stanley Tucci is Ceaser Flickerman. Effie reminds me of a poodle and Ceaser looks like he stepped out of a mob movie from the 80’s.
Jennifer Lawrence looks very ethereal as Katniss Everdeen. Is this Katniss’ wedding gown that she is forced to wear for the interview segment during the 74th games known as the Quarter Quell? Woody Harrelson is mentor Haymitch Abernathy. Woody Harrelson revealed in an interview for the Hunger Games that he stole his brother’s look for Haymitch. Kenny Kravitz is Cinna, Katniss’ friend and stylist.
Katniss’ bookends – Peeta and Gale. Liam Hemsworth plays fiery Gale and Josh Hutcherson plays hopeful Peeta.
Catching Fire was directed by Francis Lawrence. Eight months and counting until the movie comes out. What’s your favorite poster so far?
