New ‘Hunger Games: Catching fire’ character portraits featured in ‘Vanity Fair’

New character portraits from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire are being featured in the upcoming October issue of Vanity Fair magazine. Though not yet available on newsstands, images from the feature have popped up online thanks to some sharp-eyed fans.

The portraits our “test shots” from the “Capitol Portrait” series of posters that were released earlier this year, and feature images of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, Liam Hemsworth as Gale, Sam Claflin as Finnick, and Elizabeth Banks as Effie.

The magazine will be available in New York and L.A. tomorrow, and nationally on September 10th.

Besides the new images (which you can view in the slideshow accompanying this article), the feature also includes an interview with director Francis Lawrence. He’s quoted:

One of the big overarching themes for all the books is the idea of the consequences of war, and one of the unfortunate consequences of war is post-traumatic stress … That’s one of the first things you see in the movie … [Katniss and Peeta are] changed people because of having been in the Games.

  1. The pics were gorgeous! They nailed beautifully the Capitol style and sentiment. It’s interesting to note the contrast between the overly-made-up “couture” shots and the discussion by Lawrence about the PTSD and post-war aspects of ‘Catching Fire’.
