I ranted a little bit when Jennifer Lawrence was casted as Katniss in The Hunger Games movie. Too blonde, too old, yada yada yada.
Now I'm breathing a big sigh of relief. Jennifer Lawrence is on this week's Entertainment Weekly cover...and she looks pretty awesome! The hair and makeup does wonders. She almost looks like the Katniss image in my head. I can't wait to see more pictures. Hopefully we'll get a glimpse of Gale and Peeta soon.
Other reasons to anxiously await and celebrate the movie's release in March 2012:
- Woody Harrelson as Haymitch: I'm doing back flips! Absolutely loved Harrelson as Tallahassee in Zombieland. Perfect casting job there.
- Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickerman: Incredible actor!
- We can splurge and buy some amazing HG merchandise from Cafe Press, Etsy, Amazon, NECA, and more other sites.
- The Girl Who Was on Fire: Your Favorite Authors on Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games Trilogy: This collection of essays released last month (I haven't read it yet...I know, it's blasphemous) is a must read to add on your TBR list before the movie. Hmm, perhaps there will be books in the future on HG film criticism and interpretation.
So excited to see the movie. Gary Ross, please do it justice!
