NEW STILL—- KATNISS & PEETA IN THEIR CHARIOT OUTFITS! (Cinna about to set them on fire!)
Entertainment Weekly just released this exclusive still of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss & Josh Hutcherson as Peeta in their Chariot outfits and Lenny Kravitz as Cinna could be seen holding a “torch”.
“This is one of those moments where Cinna’s character syncs up with the creativity of our costume designer Judianna Makovsky,” says Ross. (Makovsky earned Oscar nominations for her work on Ross’ previous movies Pleasantville and Seabiscuit.)
“What Cinna was trying to do was create something that came out of District 12, out of a coal mining world, with a fresh, bold look to it. So Judianna went to this wonderful black reflective material that glistened like coal or graphite and would obviously work well in the Tribute parade where Katniss becomes the Girl on Fire.”
What do you guys think??
Cinna-Haymitch-Peeta THG Still from People!
Thanks to @jhutchnews for the photo!
What do you think this scene is??
CNN: And speaking of your acting experiences, you’ve been cast as Cinna in “The Hunger Games.” Have you read the books?
Kravitz: Of course. I’m really excited to be in it. I’m really anxious to see how they put this whole world together because if you’ve read the books you know the world is quite fantastical and amazing, the Capitol and the Arena.
CNN: I am a Katniss fan, of course, but Cinna feels like the heart of the series.
Kravitz: It’s funny, a lot of people say that. Why do you say that?
CNN: Because he’s got Katniss’ back. He’s very supportive, but he’s also really subversive.
Kravitz: That’s why [“Hunger Games” director] Gary Ross called me; because he said he’d seen Precious and he liked how I underplayed the character. It’s not a similar role, but in a sense it’s got a similar quality because [Nurse John] was the only backup for [“Precious”].
CNN: Have you seen costume sketches or anything?
Kravitz: Not a thing! Not a thing! That’s why I’m just as curious as you.
CNN: But Cinna’s not that crazy looking. He wears all black and gold eyeliner.
Kravitz: He’s kinda slick, right?
CNN: Have you met Jennifer Lawrence?
Kravitz: Yes, I know her actually because she did “X-Men: First Class” with my daughter, [Zoë Kravitz], so she spent a lot of time in my house in Paris when they were filming in London. That was another thing about casting me: [Ross] said, I heard that Jennifer was in your house all summer and that you were taking care of the kids and they were cooking. I had the whole cast, like six, seven kids in my house on the movie so I got to know all of them before I had even seen them in action. So Jennifer and I ended up becoming friendly. She’s really sweet. And then I saw her in “Winter’s Bone” and I was like, “Oh, wow. This girl is for real.”
CNN: The Hunger Games casting has been so anticipated and controversial to some extent…
Kravitz: I didn’t see any online stuff, but, yeah, the fans don’t play. What do you think about Woody [Harrelson] as Haymitch?
CNN: I love it!
Kravitz: It’s great, right?
CNN: The casting has been pretty terrific, but also really unexpected.
Kravitz: I know I was unexpected!

“I’m really excited to be playing Cinna,” he says. “Reading the book, I’m seeing everything – the Capitol, the arena, all this stuff. This world is going to be incredible.”
