"May the odds be ever in your favor…"
'X-Men: First Class' star Jennifer Lawrence
readies to fend off all opponents in the highly anticipated big-screen version
of 'The Hunger Games,' and we've got a first look at the fiery motion poster!
Based on the best-selling trilogy by Suzanne Collins, 'The Hunger Games' takes place in a futuristic, dystopian world ruled by an oppressive dictatorship in which children and young adults are chosen by lottery to battle to the death in an annual tournament.
