Lionsgate has released photos from the set of The Hunger Games adaptation. The photo embedded above shows actors Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth in the adaptation.
Director Gary Ross complimented Hemsworth’s commitment to the role: “On first glance he’s such a hunk that it’s easy to ascribe a hunklike simplicity to him. But this is a phenomenally subtle actor, totally in control of what he was doing.”
Below, we’ve embedded a photo of Josh Hutcherson. According to Entertainment Weekly, Hutcherson gained fifteen pounds of muscle in three weeks in order to better embody his character’s physique.
Many Hunger Games fans have reacted happily to the photos on Facebook.
