Yesterday the first image of Jennifer Lawrence in character for The Hunger Games leaked online. As I shared with you then, I am really at a loss as to how I feel about this movie. I can't really say if I'm excited or dreading it. One thing is for sure I am not indifferent to this movie and potential franchise. I feel like I should want to see, a big budget, post-apocalyptic, teenage battle to the death movie. But, when the producers say they are openly courting the Twilight audience I become weary.
Well, today some additional images appeared of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen. These pictures are from next weeks Entertainment Weekly. Like I said I'm still not sure where I come down on this whole thing. I can say, after a day with yesterday's image and now seeing these new pictures, Jennifer Lawrence's look is growing on me. It still remains to be seen if she can successfully pull off a naive 15yr old or if Gary Ross can make a bleak story palatable to the masses. We will have plenty of time to figure that out later. Today check out these pics and let me know what you think.
