Now there is Peeta. I have been hearing an overwhelmingly negative consensus. I can't believe it! I actually think Josh makes a really good Peeta. As soon as they announced him, I was like, "Yes!" To me, his facial bone structure is PERFECT for Peeta. I have also been hearing that he looks too muscular in this picture. Um. Peeta is from one of the wealthier families in District 12. He has a bit more food than Gale ever has (even with Gale's hunting--he has all those siblings to feed!). Also, he was a wrestler and for the first training he threw weights around the training center. He lifted those bags of flour all the time at home. Just because his defense in the arena was to camouflage himself, doesn't mean that was all he was capable of doing.
Anyways, this has probably turned into some sort of a rant, but I just really dislike when people are so negative all of the time. We haven't even seen a snippet of a trailer yet and people are already dismissing the movie. For me, I would much rather have their portrayal of the characters be awesome, then them look exactly right. These actors haven't even been given the chance to show us their acting yet. Can't we, as a fandom, just give them that chance? Please?
What do you think about the newest cover of "Entertainment Weekly?" I would really like to hear all of your thoughts!
