First Look At The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Finnick And Katniss Are Tooled Up - UPDATE With 2nd Image
I think The Hunger Games was, when all is said and done, my favourite film of 2012. I'm not expecting a repeat from Catching Fire, really, because Francis Lawrence isn't as exciting a director as Gary Ross.
On the other hand, the script was co-written by Michael Arndt, the book was good and the cast are great... I'm still looking forward to it.
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly for the image. There's going to be more in their new print issue, and I'm sure we'll be seeing that arrive online soon.
Clafin is 26. His age is fine for Finnick, though he does look young. The problem is that Jennifer Lawrence is 22 playing 17, I guess. Or probably more that she's always looked a bit older than her actual age. You combine the two and it doesn't seem right, but hopefully Clafin pulls it off. Not sure he'll be able to, but that's a different question.
OK, going off on a tangent here, but talking of 2012 favourites, I've missed not having an "X Films You Shouldn't Have Missed" this year. I really enjoyed the past two and found them a trove of suggestions I wouldn't otherwise have come across.
