Movie Based on the Book

The Hunger Games Official Movie Trailer!

I know this is a book blog, but the official movie trailer for The Hunger Games just came out and now I’m even more excited to see it.

The cast list is super impressive. The lead, Katniss, is played by Jennifer Lawrence, who also was the female lead in Winter’s Bone, for which she was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress. (I just finished reading the novel the movie was based on, also titled Winter’s Bone, by Daniel Woodrell, and will blog about it as soon as I have a chance to see the movie.) The male leads are appropriately played by two heart-throbs, Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) and Liam Hemsworth (Gale). And the supporting cast includes Stanley Tucci as Ceasar, Elizabeth Banks as Effie, Donald Sutherland as President Snow, Woodie Harrelson as Haymitch and Lenny Kravitz as Cinna!

If you haven’t read the books, you have until March!
