New Hunger Games Pics Online
Harrelson and more in fresh imagery

One of the biggest films looking to prove it can spawn a Potter/Twilight-style franchise this year is novel trilogy adaptation The Hunger Games. And though the initial film’s profile couldn’t be much higher if it rented a helicopter and dangled from the cockpit holding a banner, Lionsgate is intent that we not forget it’s on the way. To that end, the studio has rounded up a collection of new and previously seen imagery from the movie and shoved it out on to the web. Check out the set below.

There can’t be many people left by now who don’t know Gary Ross has been busy adapting the film from Suzanne Collins’ first book. The story finds a shattered future America (or Panem, as it’s known) split into districts run by a cruel central government. In order to keep any rebellious types from causing trouble, two young “tributes” from each district are dispatched each year to rich city Capitol to compete to the death in gladiatorial games. Our heroine is Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), who steps in to take her younger sister’s place and finds herself fighting for her life.

One or two of the newly released pics have been out in the likes of Entertainment Weekly, but there are some unseen goodies here, including a good look at Woody Harrelson’s Haymitch Abernathy, a former winner of the games who helps train Katniss. He’s hanging out with dresser Cinna (Lenny Kravitz) and Katniss' fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson).

The Hunger Games will finally hit our screens on March 23.

I've seen them before...everyone is saying they are new...but I am loving them. I'm like a sheep, I tend to read the books after I've seen the trailer for them...the same with Twilight, I hadn't read any of the books until I'd seen the film. but this time I've decided to read the books then see the film-hence: TGWTDT, The Hunger Games trilogy & One Day have been read before any of these films comes out...:D it's a fun thing to do...
