Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss (New Photo Today)

Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss in Hunger Games

For those wondering whether Jennifer Lawrence will be believable as Katniss in The Hunger Games movie, look no further. Entertainment Weekly has released the first images as Lawrence in the lead role of the dystopian young adult novel. EW was granted an exclusive interview with Jennifer Lawrence (brunette in the picture above) as she prepares for Hunger Games filming in North Carolina.

The interview with Lawrence as well as more photos and a guide to other characters in the film will appear in Entertainment Weekly on stands this Friday.

What do you think of the picture of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss? Is it what you pictured when you read the book? Does it do the book justice? I have to say that I am hopeful based on the photo. Although it is not what I pictured for Katniss (I was thinking she would look younger), I do think that it could work. I am anxious to get my hands on the magazine and see the rest of the pictures.
