We are SO CLOSE to the theatrical premiere of the much-anticipated big screen adaptation of The Hunger Games and to celebrate we can look forward to a special Hunger Games magazine published by the folks at Us Weekly magazine. In addition, a new batch of character photos have been released along with a newish TV spot that features great scenes from the film. We aren’t quite in the home stretch just yet … but we are getting there. These new promo items are really helping the time fly by! Check ‘em out below.
This special Hunger Games magazine won’t hit newsstands until March 2 but it is available for pre-order at Barnes & Noble and will feature 125 photos from the film. Additionally, producers of the film dish a bit about the upcoming sequel films Catching Fire and Mockingjay. Apparently, the director already knows who he wants to cast in the role of Finnick Odair:
“Catching Fire won’t open until November 2013, but director Gary Ross tells Us he and author Suzanne Collins are already thinking casting. Example: For playboy Finnick Odair, “I already decided who I want!” he teases.” — Us Weekly
OMG … has a Finnick really already been chosen? Any guesses who it might be? Honestly, I can’t think past The Hunger Games but … yeah, once the first film is released, I’m sure many of us will turn immediately to any scrap of info about the coming films. Wee, so exciting!
In additon to this fun magazine, we get to check out a new batch of character photos:
All of our faves are represented here … and they all look great. I can’t wait to see them in ACTION! BUT, in order to tide us over a bit, here’s a look at one of the TV spots for The Hunger Games that is airing on TV now:
GAHHHH! I love all of these short promo videos. Normally, I hate seeing too much of a film before it’s released but I think the folks promoting The Hunger Games have done a great job showing us a lot of stuff without giving too much away. I think it helps that I’ve read the books but still … this really doesn’t feel like overkill to me. We are mere weeks away from the release of The Hunger Games. Are you ready? Cuz I am SO ready.
