I'm still unsure about the Haymitch casting, but damn, this looks so awesome. I cannot wait for this movie!

I'm kinda like this O.O

Awwww she looks great!

I'm reserving judgement until I see actual filming pics, because we all remember the first pre-movie Twilight cover.

Why is this movie not here yet? Whyyyyyy.

She looks really awesome. Am excited for woody as haymitch tbh. I love that sunnavabitch

I still have to finish reading the books, but I adored Winter's Bone and Ree and Katniss have a TON in common, so I have faith that Jennifer Lawrence will do an excellent job with this.

She's... orange.

(PS, when are they going to cast Cinna? I've been waiting so patiently! Please tell me they're not considering cutting him from the film...)

They can't cut Cinna!! He's waaaay too important to the plot and--

::thinks of half of Voldemort's past missing from HBP::

I have a feeling this will be one of the rare instances where I enjoy the movies better than the books.


Can I ask why you feel that? Just curious — is it something about how JL looks as Katniss in particular, or something else about the books? I always kind of thought the books read very much like movies (probably because of Collins' screenwriting background).

Not at all how I picture Katniss. But also not a huge fan of the book--thought it was over-rated--so...

She really does look a lot older than 16, but I'm willing to suspend my disbelief! The picture is great - looks more like an illustration than a photo.

I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for them to announce who they're casting as Cinna. ^_^

She's way more gorgeous than I imagined Katniss being, but it IS Hollywood. And if Woody is anywhere near as awesome as he was in Zombieland, then I will be okay.

I was really unsure about this casting, but I have to admit, she looks the part, and she looks a lot younger in-costume than I expected.

This so much. Well done on their part.


My objections to this picture.

I think JL is a terrific actress, but I still have objections to how the role was cast.

I wouldn't be very upset if the casting call was inclusive to all young actresses, regardless of race or ethnicity.

Browning Jennifer up to look ethnically ambiguous? This is the cherry on this fail sundae.

I don't like the braid to the side, but otherwise, I like it. I know it won't match what I have in my head, but I'm looking forward to their interpretation. :-)

Wow, I'm kinda of surprised by how much sense Woody Harrelson makes. And WHOOO TRIXIE from Deadwood is Kantiss' mom.

I am very much on Team Where The Hell is Cinna?!, though.

I now want to make icons with "Team Where the Hell is Cinna" on them now because I must know.

Not bad makeup so far. Magazine covers are always orange unless alabaster these days. Just one shade removed from my own olive tone grade school days.

Apparently they're also cutting out the character of "Madge Undersee" (The Mayor's Daughter)

I wonder who will give Katniss her pin now?


Edited at 2011-05-19 02:53 am (UTC)

My guess is Prim will have the pin and it'll be something their dad gave her. And I'd be ok with that change because my one (minor) complaint with the series is that we don't see a lot of Katniss/Prim interaction in the first book to back up how close Katniss says they are. And considering what happens at the very end...well, let's just say it might be more powerful if we get to know and love Prim from the very beginning.

hot bitch, flaw-free cover, etc.
