Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
A few months back, Lionsgate released the first trailer for the Gary Ross adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ novel The Hunger Games, the first book in a trilogy about teenagers chosen to compete to the death in a giant outdoor arena controlled by the government. The star of the story is a 16-year old girl named Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), who falls for fellow combatant — or tribute, as the books refer to them — Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson).
This batch of photos released by Lionsgate features Lawrence, Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne), Lenny Kravitz (Cinna), Woody Harrelson (Haymitch Abernathy), Elizabeth Banks (Effie Trinket), Amanda Stenberg (Rue) and director Ross. The film is scheduled to premiere on March 23.
