So here you go…Hunger-heads? We’re still searching for an appropriate nickname for “Hunger Games” fans. Mockingbirds? Team Everdeen? Yeah, maybe that last one works.
Anyway, EW has dropped a few more photos of the beefy duo of Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson as well as our hero Jennifer Lawrence in the upcoming film. As fans already know, the two boys play Peeta Mellark and Gale Hawthorne respectively, the former an easy-going competitor in the gladiatorial games who harbors a secret crush on Katniss (Lawrence) while the latter is her best friend and hunting partner. And oh yeah, he loves her too. So there will be lots of pained looks, sad faces and tousled hair in between the gladiator battles in the dystopian future where the film is set (that might just be the best sentence we’ll write all week).
Filming is already underway with Gary Ross directing and “Hunger Games” lands on March 23, 2012.
