[UPDATED With HQ Photo] New Photo of Jennifer Lawrence As Katniss Everdeen In Arena On Set
Following the article Lionsgate Says They Can’t Screw Up On “The Hunger Games” which was posted not long ago, a new photo of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in arena get up has surfaced on Los Angeles Times blog. Titled “‘Hunger Games’ is Lions Gate’s most costly movie ever at nearly $100 million”, this article was posted around an hour ago.
This article did an recap on the full story which I had reported about not long ago here.
The first of four planned movies based on Suzanne Collins’ bestselling trilogy wrapped production in North Carolina on Saturday and will be released March 23. It’s the Santa Monica studio’s most expensive, and potentially most lucrative, production to date.
Lions Gate spent nearly $100 million to produce “The Hunger Games,” a figure brought closer to $80 million after tax credits.
When it acquired the rights in 2009, the studio had conceived of it as a smaller production that would appeal only to young adults. But at the time only one book had been released and it had sold fewer than 500,000 copies. Today the trilogy has sold more than 12 million copies, and backers believe it could be what Hollywood calls a “four quadrant” film — one that appeals to men and women, young and old.
What’s interesting is this article includes a never seen before photo of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in her arena outfit on set. Check out the picture after the jump.
Though this photo did not show anything that’s a from a scene not seen before or another actor/actress in character, it’s still incredibly exciting to see more photos are coming out.
What do you think? Which scene do you think this could be from?
UPDATE: The Hunger Games Movie Facebook page managed by Lionsgate has revealed a higher quality version of the photo. You can even see the scratches on her neck clearly. Do check it out after the jump!
