And so 'The Hunger Games' asset avalanche continues with another new still featuring Elizabeth Banks' ('Slither'), Woody Harrelson ('Zombieland') and Jennifer Lawrence ('X-Men: First Class') all appearing together in a single settee shot as Effie, Haymitch and Katniss respectively. Gary Ross' action epic 'The Hunger Games', from the novel of the same name, will finally be hitting up theatres this coming March and I for one and excited to see how it all turns out. Josh Hutcherson ('The Vampire's Assistant'), Liam Hemsworth ('Triangle'), Willow Shields, Stanley Tucci ('The Lovely Bones'), Toby Jones ('The Mist', 'St Trinian's) and Wes Bentley ('P2') all co-star and you can check out the new still and all the relevant plot deets 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' opens in theatres on 23 March 2012.
