The Hunger Games News Roundup

First up is a brand new clip that premiered on The Ellen Show. This clip features Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen and Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. This is a scene straight from the book, and even though Cinna isn’t exactly what I pictured, I think Kravitz will do an amazing job. Lawrence is actually best friends with Kravitz’s daughter, Zoe, with whom she costarred in X-Men First Class, so Lenny and Jennifer were close before filming. According to director Gary Ross, this made the characters’ relationship more authentic on film, which, in my experience, trumps appearance any day.

Next, is a brand new 30 second TV spot that gives us a little sneak peek at the Tribute Parade as well as Katniss saying goodbye to her little sister Prim. I’m loving all the new footage and I can’t wait to see some shots from inside the Arena… but it’s good they’re keeping that a secret for now.

A cute interview with Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson from Popsugar. They talks about their impending superstardom and status as heartthrobs. It’s cute to think that in a few short weeks, these kids lives will change forever. They will be launched into the stratosphere, much like the three stars of The Twilight Saga. I have faith that these guys will handle it beautifully.

Finally we have video from the first stop of The Hunger Games national mall tour. This took place at the Westfield Mall in LA. The crowd seems pretty excited if you ask me :) I beleive this level of obsessions bodes well for the movie. If it lives up to expectations, we could see a $100 million opening weekend… that’s HUGE! With crowds as crazy as these, I don’t doubt it.

15 days guys :) GET EXCITED!!!!
