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

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.
