New The Hunger Games Stills Feature Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson

Lionsgate has released a pair of news stills from The Hunger Games, which is currently in its last legs of production in North Carolina.

The stills separately feature Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Malark. A safe assumption is that both were snapped while the duo were battling in the arena during the deadly Hunger Games. Jennifer is wearing the arena outfit with arrows on her back, and both characters have some blood on them.

The Hunger Games also stars Elizabeth Banks, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson, Willow Shields, Toby Jones and Donald Sutherland. Gary Ross is directing this first of four planned films based on Suzanne Collins’ successful trilogy novels.

Look for The Hunger Games to arrive in theaters on March 23, 2012 in hopes of capturing the young adult audience that has made the Harry Potter and Twilight film franchises so successful. The first The Hunger Games trailer should arrive within the next few months.
