Fans of “The Hunger Games” have been wary thus far about the upcoming adaptation of Suzanne Collins‘ beloved book, scrutinizing nearly every bit of casting and every picture that has come along. Well, it’s the first week of August and two more pictures have arrived for the faithful to pore over.
Granted, there is not much to them. It’s yet another look at Jennifer Lawrence as our hero Katniss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, an easy-going competitor in the gladiatorial games who harbors a secret crush on the bow-and-arrow bearing girl. We’ll leave our comments at that because any suggestion that the romance angle might be heightened for the movie version seems to send some readers into a frothing frenzy. But we will say this, for two people who look like they just got through a battle of some kind, their perfectly tousled hair is pretty remarkable. In the future, it appears that hairstyles remain pretty much unchanged, but hair gel and hairspray has moved ahead in leaps and bounds.
Filming continues on “The Hunger Games,” with Gary Ross directing and Steven Soderbergh doing second unit (pretty much our only reason for caring about this thing). The film opens on March 23, 2012. [via ComingSoon]
