Following on from the nice first trailer from The Hunger Games, Lionsate have just sent over this behind the scenes image which shows Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen on the set of the movie. We’ve become very familiar with Lawrence in this raincoat as most of the PR seems to have focused around her in the jungle equipped with her bow and arrow. Click the image below to enlarge.

The Hunger Games stars Jennifer Lawrence (XMen: First Class), Josh Hutcherson (The Kids Are All Right), Donald Sutherland, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks and Lenny Kravitz, the film is due for release in UK cinemas March 2012.

In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.
