A new duo of stills have been revealed to add to the ever-growing stack of assets for Gary Ross' 'The Hunger Games'. The Lionsgate production currently in post opens next March and stars Jennifer Lawrence ('X-Men: First Class'), Elizabeth Banks ('Slither') and Liam Hemsworth ('Triangle') who star as Katniss Everdeen, Effie Trinket and Gale respectively. The two new images give us a peek at the 3 cast members including an almost unrecognisable Elizabeth Banks (below). The images come courtesy of People and you can check out some of Banks' comments about her character in the upcoming Suzanne Collins adaption at the link at the bottom of the article. Josh Hutcherson ('The Vampire's Assistant'), , Willow Shields, Stanley Tucci ('The Lovely Bones'), Woody Harrelson ('Zombieland'), Toby Jones ('The Mist', 'St Trinian's) and Wes Bentley ('P2') all co-star.
"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' arrives in theatres on 23 March 2012.
