Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth pose together as they kick off The Hunger Games U.S. Mall Tour at Westfield Century City on Saturday (March 3) in Los Angeles.
Check out the latest cover for the Entertainment Weekly magazine.
It features a new shot of a Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games movie, as well as some sidebar pictures of Effie, Peeta, Cinna, Haymitch and Gale.
According to part of the behind the scenes feature, the director Gary Ross explains that The Hunger Games is violent and doesn’t “back off” from what it is.
It also talks about the controversy surrounding Lenny Kravitz taking on the role of Cinna.
Kravitz was working on his album, living out of a trailer in the Bahamas and oblivious to the Hunger Games phenomenon, when Ross first approached him to offer him the part. The director had been moved by the musician’s gentle grace in Precious and was further intrigued by the fact that Kravitz already felt a nurturing bond with star Jennifer Lawrence, who had become close friends with his daughter Zoe during the filming of X-Men: First Class. “I love that girl,” says Kravitz. “The minute I met her she became a part of the family.”
