New poster and images for The Hunger Games

The images below have been floating around the net for a while. Now, Lionsgate has officially released them to the UK. three of them look like the time that will be set aside for the "training montage" sequence that a film like this will, probably, have so to speed the plot along to the Battle Royale. Sorry, that should have read The Hunger Games.

Not only do we get new images, we also get the final poster. This, as most of the previous ones, show Katniss and her bow and arrow.

In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss' young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.
The Hunger Games is released March 23, 2012.
