Hunger Games Movie Pictures
Murray Close

Watch that lighter, Cinna! Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive first look at Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark’s (Josh Hutcherson) flammable black Hunger Games unitards — and though unlit, they’re pretty cool. The costumes, designed in party by Everdeen’s stylist Cinna (Lenny Kravitz), are eventually set aflame, and the two young stars dazzle the people of Panem as they ride through town the night before the games begin.

Last month, InStyle asked several designers to imagine the fiery costumes, with Christian Siriano, Charlotte Ronson and Nicole Miller creating super-cool yellow, orange and red interpretations of the look. Though we’ll have to wait until the film’s release on March 23rd to see the costumes aglow, this first look is definitely getting us excited. Tell us: How did you envision the flammable costumes?

I am not liking these. It is not what I pictured at all. I can’t even describe what I was picturing but it was not black. I was picturing maybe cream and orange and gold.

The more pictures I see of this movie the more skeptical I’m becoming. Peeta looks nothing like I imagined him to. Katniss as well. Womp womp.

Give ’em a break, the movie isn’t ever like the book & the mind can do much more than the hand. Hunger Games the movie will be great!

These look like an ice capade satire on SNL.

Really like @Christy said there’s only so much you can do with a book turning into a movie. First of all i think if you wanted to see everything in The Hunger Games the movie would have had to be in Anime, and i don’t think that would’ve pleased fans. So far as a BIG! Hunger Game Fan i am pleased, the clothes really dont matter to me neither do the looks as much, its the way they are bringing it to life which makes me happy.

I’m sure the movie will be awesome! If you don’t go see it then they won’t make a 2nd or 3rd one… so go see it!!

Jennifer is a wonderful actress, so we know going into yet another YA series at least this leading lady can act! I am, however, sad that Lionsgate has now acquired Summit. That worries me where this series is concerned. But I have faith in Jenn & rest of cast to bring HG to life!

The costumes will look so cool when they are on fire. I think the pictures coming out look so impressive! I can’t wait for the movie!!

I wouldn’t care if Josh was purple and had wings, he would still be my Peeta. I trust Susan Collins, she fell in love with Joshes interpretation of Peeta and if she is convinced that I am.
As for the costumes? I can’t wait to see them lit up!! Peeta looks like he wants to bolt at any moment and Katniss is like “…Bring it” I love it!!
