Book-to-screen adaptations are tricky things, and my most recent obsession (now that Game of Thrones is unspooling and exceeding all of my expectations) is the upcoming Hunger Games movie. Like most fans, my biggest question was who would be Katniss. She's one of the most compelling characters I've met in ages, and bringing her to life on screen will be a challenge -- particularly with a legion of protective fans wringing their hands at every turn.
Therefore, I was gratified to see a photo of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen on the cover of next week's Entertainment Weekly. Check it out:
Braid? Check. Bow and arrow? Check. Olive skin? Mostly check. Angry defiance of the Capital? It's tough to say, but this looks like a good start.
So what do you think? Will Jennifer make a passable Katniss? Or were the pictures in your head a little different?
