Gale and Katniss Hunt While Peeta Bakes in New Hunger Games Images

On the heels of yesterday’s EW cover reveal featuring Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson looking all Liam Hemsworth-y and Josh Hutcherson-y, here are the two lads in their respective roles in Gary Ross’ upcoming sci-fi actioner “The Hunger Games”, which also features a fresh new pic of a brunette Jennifer Lawrence looking all Katniss Everdeen-y while out hunting with boy toy Gale, while ol Peeta is back at home cooking. Ain’t that just like a woman? Am I right, boys?

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

The games stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland, and Lenny Kravitz, and begins March 23, 2012.
