Hunger Games Character Posters and more!

Character posters have been released for next year's Hunger Games movie!
The principle actors depicted on the posters are: 
top row: Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), Peeta (John Hutcherson) and Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Rue (Amanda Stenberg) 
bottom row: Cato (Alexander Ludwig), Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), Effie (Elizabeth Banks), Cinna (Lenny Kravitz),  .

And in case you haven't read the books yet, here's the synopsis from their press release:

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 on 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 live.

And check out their website to see a sneak peak video and pictures from the film.  You can also register with The Capitol and be assigned a district in anticipation of the 74th Hunger Games.
