‘The Hunger Games’ Interactive Cast Photo Introduces the Tributes

The Hunger Games movie cast District 9 tributes The Hunger Games Interactive Cast Photo Introduces the Tributes

In The Hunger Games, two dozen teenagers from the twelve “districts” of Panem are put into a deadly arena to battle it out to the death. But aside from the lead characters of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) – and a few fan-favorites like the sprightly young Rue (Amandla Stenberg) – how much is actually known about the so-called tributes who are selected for The Hunger Games?

If you’re not a fan of the Suzanne Collins’ novel, then the answer is likely ‘nothing at all.’ But no worries, we now have a way for you to get to know the main players who will be featured in the film.

Vanity Fair has posted a new interactive photo featuring the young cast of The Hunger Games looking dapper in some outfits that look like they’re straight out of a J. Crew catalog (it is Vanity Fair, after all). While these tributes may look all “summer fun” in the photo you see now, those happy smiles and pristine garments won’t be what you find in the actual Hunger Games film. Once the melee begins, those pretty young faces will all be bruised, battered, bloody, and cut-up, as these kids try to slaughter each other to win honor and rewards for their respective districts.

Click on the image below to get a look at the interactive photo, which explains the name of each featured tribute, the district they’re from, their skills and background, as well as biographical info about the actor playing the role, and finally, a quote about what it is like being a part of this potential hit film franchise:

Seeing the featured tributes side by side manages to dispel some of the concerns that have been expressed in these Interweb chat threads. The biggest revelation is that Alexander Ludwig (who will play brutish “Career Tribute” Cato from District 2) is indeed bigger and bulkier than his co-stars. Many fans of the books have been complaining that Ludwig is too frail to play the physically-imposing Cato – guess that’s why it’s better to wait for something like a cast photo before jumping the gun with half-informed complaints…

SPOILER ALERT! Not all of those kids are going to make it to the finish line of these games. But who will make it out (and to the inevitable sequel) alive, and who will be nothing but a bloody memory left smeared across the grounds of the arena?

You’ll have to find out the answer to that question when The Hunger Games hits theaters on March 23, 2012.

  1. its super weird seeing all these kids super happy together knowing that theyre going to try to kill eachother in the worst way, still, any Hunger Games update is a welcome one.

  2. I can’t wait for this movie to come out. The only problem I have with the series at all is why are they making 4 movies? It just doesn’t make sense, where do they plan to end the 3rd movie. I have read all the books and IMO the 3rd book, although still good, was the weakest of the three and if they plan on breaking up the 3rd book into two movies it could end up being a disaster.

    Also, I really wish people would stop saying this is a Battle Royale rip off, it’s not. Yes they are similar in some aspects, but not to the point where you can say that they are the same exact thing.

    • @ Alberto

      Agreed that the last book was the weakest by far. If anything they should split the middle movie up and in the third move involve some early stuff from the last book. I think there are a lot of places they can break and then wrap up the fourth movie with the latter part final chapters. :) Was that hard to follow? Take the last book divide it by two then multiply it by the square root of the first movie minus the second book = Hopefully Awesome Movie?

    • 4 movies for one reason: money :)

  3. I have not read the books, but im guessing that neither of the two black members of the cast, make it to the end. just something in my gut is telling me this is so.

    • Both characters do actually prove to be very important to Katniss and to the story, so take heart in that, at least…

    • im so sorry to say this but u are so very rascit agasint blacks

      • bubbles…

        Actually, the point he seemed to be making is that (stereotypically) the black character in a film with extreme danger tends to be one of the first to die. There have even been a number of parodies about this particular sore point in moviedom. If anything, elderwand was expressing irritation about his expectation…the opposite of racism, in this case.

  4. also im guessing only young good looking people live in this world?

    • Young: yes. You have to be under 18 to participate in the Hunger Games.

      • oh ok, now i know, thanks

  5. No but if you read some of the ‘interactivity’ it will possibly spoil the movie with who lives/dies and when.

    • Ya, I’d be pissed off after having read this if I hadn’t already read the books. They give away A LOT of info on the deaths of the characters… not cool.

      And Ludwig still isn’t right for Cato.

    • i have not read the stuff on the interactivity picture and im not going to, these were just some questions that i had. I just feel bad for black people in cinema, always dying. Let the brotha live!

  6. Sorry folks, we didn’t see all the SPOILERS Vanity Fair posted. We’ve added a big warning on the link.

  7. heres an idea for a cool promo website.
    they should set up a Capitol run website, make it look like a “get to know your tributes” page, list “combat scores” talents, home sectors things like that, way better then just a “interactive” picture

    • awesome idea, that way for people who have not read the books(like me) it is easier to get excited for the movie and have a little bit of background information.

  8. Awesomeness. Love any and all hunger games news. Keep that up SC :)

  9. I love the books so much!! Every time I finish one I go back and read my favourite parts over and over. I still haven’t got my hands on the third one though. I can’t wait to get the third book and see the movie. I just hope that it is not a big disappointment.

  10. I ❤ the series!!! So emotional and you really feel like our in the story!
