The first promo poster for Gary Ross' 'The Hunger Games' has been spotted at what we assume to be the Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas. It features the tagline 'May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favour' and a large view of the gold pin worn by Katniss (played by the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence). A great little supporting cast that features Josh Hutcherson ('The Vampire's Assistant'), Elizabeth Banks ('Slither'), Willow Shields, Stanley Tucci ('The Lovely bones'), Woody Harrelson ('Zombieland'), Toby Jones ('The Mist', 'St Trinian's) and Wes Bentley ('P2') are all also on board. Check out the banner below.
"Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
THE HUNGER GAMES will be directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Collins' best-selling novel, which has over 3 million copies in print in the United States alone, is the first in a trilogy of novels which have developed a global following."
'The Hunger Games' arrives in theatres from 23 March 2012.
