First Look: Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in THE HUNGER GAMES

The folks over at Entertainment Weekly have landed quite a coup - an exclusive first look at Jennifer Lawrence as lead Katniss Everdeen in Gary Ross' THE HUNGER GAMES adaptation. This week's issue has Lawrence on the cover in full Katniss garb, so be ready to see this picture everywhere. But, for now, we get a peek at the cover, Lawrence's look, and some more info about the film.

The special first look issue of EW will feature an interview with Lawrence as she hones her archery skills. Lawrence talks about how much she wanted the role, and how scared she was of it, saying, “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.’" Lawrence also professes to loving the books and feeling as if she would have serious regrets if she had turned the role down. But does that Katniss love translate to a Katniss look? Well, what do you know! This first look shows us that she's a brunette! With a bow and quiver of arrows! And a big, bright pin that means a lot of fans of the series! Rest easy, Mockingjays. Check out the cover, after the break.

Check out the next issue of Entertainment Weekly for more pictures of Lawrence as Katniss, more on their interview, and what sounds like a bit of a field guide to the film's large cast. The issue is on stands on May 20.

About Kate Erbland

At age five, Kate was famous in her first grade class for having seen DIRTY DANCING twelve times (a distinction which was only overshadowed by her other infamous trait of constantly running around with her skirt over her head). While her tastes have turned considerably more refined in the intervening twenty years, Kate still carries a serious torch for dance movies (and for skirt-head). She’s seen every James Bond movie in theaters since 1985 (A VIEW TO A KILL), has never walked out of or passed out during a film (CLOVERFIELD), truly believes movie theater popcorn should be its very own food group, and once told David Gordon Green, “you’re my very favorite director in the whole wide world.” Kate came to Los Angeles for the weather and a writing program at Loyola Marymount University that allowed her to spend weeks on the road, pretending to be Kerouac while drinking a lot of cheap wine. She has stayed in Los Angeles because she can’t imagine living anywhere that doesn’t allow her to tell people, “Tara Reid and I go to the same grocery store.” In her free time, Kate enjoys talking about all things important to various species of the living (including, but not limited to, people, hairless cats, and police ponies), the local Los Angeles music scene, hiking, and telling people to see more movies and read more books.
