Additional promotional shots of Jennifer Lawrence (star of X-Men: First Class) in The Hunger Games are in, thanks to Entertainment Weekly. We got the first look a few days ago and now we have a few more pictures to feast our eyes on.
Not only is the heroine of Gary Ross’ adaptation of The Hunger Games completely in costume with her bow and arrows, she is also featuring her new hair dye as Katniss Everdeen. Unfortunately, there are no photos of the rest of the cast, which includes Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, and Stanley Tucci.
I honestly don’t know if the actual character Jennifer Lawrence is playing looks remotely similar to the description of Katniss in the original novel, since I have never read The Hunger Games.
However, the photos look great, making Lawrence a cool cross between the Greek goddess Diana and a girl who happens to like wearing all-leather outfits. Hopefully some movie stills will be released soon for The Hunger Games. Here’s an excerpt from the print edition of Entertainment Weekly regarding Katniss’ costume:
When it comes to the dazzling attire Katniss will wear when she’s interviewed in front of the Capital audience, Lawrence couldn’t care less. But she was plenty vocal on the subject of her arena outfit – the survivalist-style clothing (seen here) that she wears while fighting for her life. “I’m going to be doing a lot of my own stunts,” says Lawrence. “I want to make sure I can run and jump and climb. I’ve been driving [the costume designer] crazy with the boots: ‘You have to fix this here, you have to make it lighter here, you have to open it up here.’ The dresses I don’t care about them. Just put them on me. It’s like Oscar season again.”
