First look at Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss!

I've been following the development for the future Hunger Games movie quite closely. I still can't decide if I'm really excited about it, nor do I really think I still agree with the choice to make it into a movie, but I've been following it none the less.
I hadn't really posted anything about it yet, as it's been mostly casting announcements. But I just felt like this deserved a post.

We have our first look at Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen!

Personally, I think they've done well with hair and make-up, getting her general style right. But honestly, one problem that I always have with stuff like this, and one problem that I was worried about for The Hunger Games: is that they would over-glamorize Katniss. I'm not saying she should be ugly. I just think that she looks way too Hollywood-attractive. I think it'll make her less relatable to the target audience of the film. 

But hey, this is just one photo, and hopefully we'll get a less photo-shopped one soon. I'm sure she'll be great as Katniss, as I've heard she's a very good actress, though I haven't seen her in anything.

Leave me any thoughts on what you think of this first look! 


  1. I can't wait to see the reports from the set and the first trailer. She looks great.

  2. I thought the same when I saw it but didn't want to say anything. I also think she looks too old.

  3. I hear you! I have been following the casting very closely, but haven't made up my mind if I want to see the movie. I just don't want to be disappointed, because I love the book so much!


Thanks for stopping by! :)
