The age of Twilight is over. Now we’re in The Hunger Games era. Let the obsessions begin as Entertainment Weekly unveils their first look at each character.
First up is Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen. She looks…well, like Lawrence with a tan. But cosplayers can start their engines, and begin trying to replicate her badass hoodie.
Lawrence is keenly aware that accepting something like Hunger Games opens her up to a new kind of fame and fan scrutiny. She admits to being absolutely terrified. “”I knew that as soon as I said yes, my life would change. And I walked around an entire day thinking ‘It’s not too late, I could still go back and do indies, I haven’t said yes yet, it’s not too late.'”
That says something about the level of ordinary geekdom playing an X-Men is nowadays. You can walk away from that these days. But not these young adult phenomenons.
The full cover is below. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly for emailing it to us personally, and then making me feel bad as all the sites were faster than I in putting it up.
