First Look at Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen

For what has seemed like every week for a couple months, the movie news readers has been bombarded with casting news about the highly anticipated THE HUNGER GAMES.  Initially, it was exciting to watch and anticipate who would be chosen for the main trio of characters: Katniss, Peta and Gale, and once those had been cast by Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth (respectively), we were treated with what felt like a barrage of tribute casting with tribute after tribute 

However all is settled now, and with filming just beginning, we are treated, courtesy of EW, with the first look and interview at the newly brunette Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen:

Eventhough I have some doubts about casting and the fact the movie probably won't be rated-R even though the story lends itself to be extremely gory, I am very excited for this movie.  I adore the this first installment of the series and couldn't put it down when I started reading.  Now, if they decide to make the other two, that's a different story, but we'll save that for another time. 

The new issue of Entertainment Weekly will hit news stands May 20th.

THE HUNGER GAMES will be released March 23, 2012 starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, and Wes Bentley.
