Been going through some “Hunger” withdrawals? Lionsgate has released eight brand-spanking-new character posters for “The Hunger Games” to help tide over the five month wait until the movie’s March 23 release date. While they might not be as edgy as the last batch of posters debuted, they do offer a lot of first looks at some of the main characters in the upcoming adaptation of Suzanne Collins‘ best-selling novels.

Fans have already seen Katniss, Peeta and Gale in action, so the real excitement here comes from getting a look at the rest of the major players in the film. Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket is definitely the most colorful of the bunch, and it’s nice to see how her over-the-top make-up and hairstyle is handled in the film, even if this poster is in profile. It’s also the first look at Woody Harrelson as Haymith, though he looks a bit less ragged than I would have expected. And Lenny Kravitz definitely looks spot-on as Cinna.

In terms of the newcomers, it seems like Lionsgate is putting Rue and Cato at the forefront of the other Hunger Games candidates that fans should be aware of. It’s an interesting choice for Amandla Stenberg as Rue to be the only character looking down instead of forward on the posters, but I’m not sure if that was just done for style or not. And Alexander Ludwig looks like a very impressive Cato. It will be nice to see him alongside fellow District 2 tribute Clove.

Even though these posters show off eight of the major characters, there are plenty more reveals to look forward to in the next few months. Let’s not forget that, despite the fact that the focus has largely been on the three young leads in “The Hunger Games,” the franchise has acquired an impressive amount of adult talent. There’s still Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickman, Donald Sutherland as President Snow, Toby Jones as Claudius Templesmith and Wes Bently as Seneca Crane left to see. And, of course, we have yet to see the imagery of The Girl on Fire.

Who else is counting down the days until the next “The Hunger Games” trailer premieres? What did you think of these new posters? Tell us in the comments section below or on Facebook and Twitter.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
