New Photos from The Hunger Games featuring Jennifer Lawrence come to The Fan Carpet

09 August 2011

The Fan Carpet are pleased to make available the first few images from the eagerly anticipated Gary Ross directed adaptation of The Hunger Games featuring sought after talent Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen.

In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America 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' young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, 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.

Adapted from the best seller from Suzanne Collins by Billy Ray, The Hunger Games comes to cinemas on March 23 next year and features a strong cast including Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Wes Bentley, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Toby Jones and Donald Sutherland.
