Katniss, Haymitch & Effie Feature In A New Promo Image For ‘The Hunger Games’


Earlier this month we got to check out a new promo photo of Peeta, Haymitch and Cinna from the upcoming big screen adaptation of The Hunger Games and today we get to check out another photo, this time of Katniss, Haymitch and Effie. Altho there is no textual context that goes along with the photo, I think it’s safe to say that those of us who read the book might have a guess or two about what is going on in the photo. The commentary below contains possible spoilers from the film so … read on at your own risk. Click below to check it out.

Check out this really awesome new image of Katniss, Haymitch, and Effie (in her green wig!!) watching what’s either the recap of the chariot scene or the announcement of their training session scores. There’s a whole lot going on in this image, so let’s break it down!

  • This is a much better look at what we now know is the training center room where they watch TV events and meet for strategy.
  • A new outfit and wig for Effie, with a very poofy shoulder area of a bright aqua blouse with matching miniskirt.
  • We see a bit of Haymitch’s attitude in the way he’s “sitting” with a drink on his belly, watching with a mixed look of concern, hostility, and nonchalance.
  • Katniss is curled up and looking up at the TV with anxiety.
  • Peeta’s legs! Ooh la la! (kidding)
  • Two light blue drinks sit on top of the counter. What could they be?! I should start looking into this for Fictional Food!
  • An odd glass (?) decoration can be seen behind them. Just part of the room?
  • OMG … getting these little peeks at the film is really driving me mad … but in a good way. It may seem like we’ve been seeing “a lot” from The Hunger Games but really, we haven’t seen anything when compared to the entire movie as a whole. I really don’t mind the release of all of these promo photos … in fact, I very much look forward to their continued release. I get newly excited each time a new photo comes out … and this is no exception. Loving it to DEATH!

      Seriously..It’s such a nothing picture but tells so much! Ugh..I’m too excited for this movie to come out..It’s still so far away!!

      There are no words for how excited I am! This AND The Hobbit in the same year? I am going to die.

    • Anne Boleyn

      Could this be the results of the scores?
      You know, after Katniss shoots an arrow at the pig?

    • Iheartaustin

      That was my immediate thought when I saw the pic, this must be when they get their scores! I am loving Effie though she looks even cooler than I thought in my head!

      I am totally loving Effie! Still not totally sold on Harrelson as Haymitch. He is the only thing so far that I haven’t been excited about.
