First Image of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games!

Entertainment Weekly have The Hunger Games' scoop with this first picture of the series' lead, Jennifer Lawrence in full Katniss Everdeen costume!

I'm excited but at the same time... underwhelmed. Maybe a full body shot with Katniss's bow and arrow poised to strike would be more inspiring?

According to Lionsgate:


Pivotal Roles In The Lionsgate® Film Based On Suzanne Collins’ Runaway Bestselling Novel Go To Talented Young Actors Josh Hutcherson And Liam Hemsworth

LOS ANGELES, CA, April 4, 2011- Lionsgate® and the filmmakers of THE HUNGER GAMES are pleased to announce that actor Josh Hutcherson (THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT) has been cast in the role of Peeta Mellark, with Liam Hemsworth (THE LAST SONG) joining the film in the role of Gale Hawthorne in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ worldwide smash hit novel. Both actors will star opposite Jennifer Lawrence, who it was recently announced will play heroine Katniss Everdeen.

Typo anyone? I can't help but think these two should be switched - or I may have to trade teams - I mean... really?!
