Hunger Games Pictures!

“Deep in the meadow, hidden far away
A cloak of leaves, a moonbeam ray
Forget your woes and let your troubles lay
And when it’s morning again, they’ll wash away
Here it’s safe, here it’s warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you.”

The above is one of my all time favourite quotes from The Hunger Games (the books) and I felt it reflected the feel of the book and the upcoming movie.  

We’ve been sent some genuinely cool stills from the shoot to share with you:

I love the distressed look on the building, the muted colours used.  And of course the fact that Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) is holding a bit of bread loaf.  Great scene setting.

Peeta again – looking nicely roughed up. 

Be still my heart.  Katniss Everdeen you are my hero. 

In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.

The movie is slated for release March 2012.  I’ll be the one in the queue wearing my MockingJay(stick on) tattoo!
