Lionsgate has released a clip from “The Hunger Games.” It shows stylist Cinna (Lenny Kravitz – what inspired casting!) planning the concept of Katniss’s first public appearance.
Every time I see something new from this movie, I think a) “They did it perfectly. I can’t wait to see it” and b) “I can’t believe how dark this story is.”
Jennifer Lawrence was amazing in “Winter’s Bone,” a hero’s journey through the backwoods of the Ozarks looking for her missing father among all the outlaws. I have to say, “Hunger Games” looks about as cheery.
Luckily, I like dark.
