Hunger Games Photo of the Day: Liam Hemsworth’s Gale Hawthorne at the Reaping

Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne in The Hunger Games movie

Another day, another photo! Lionsgate is on a roll now. Every day or two, they give us another tasty visual morsel from The Hunger Games set in North Carolina. Today’s installment: Liam Hemsworth looks almost directly into the camera from within a crowd of District 12 boys dressed in worn out button downs.

Like the handful of official images already released, this shot tells a bit of The Hunger Games story. These are, no doubt, the finest clothes these boys own–the ones with most of the coal dust, but certainly not all of it, washed out. They’ve dressed and shown up because they have to, not because they want to. There’s nothing celebratory about this annual gathering, the Reaping, but no one dares not to show up.

And, look in the back center and front right corner for our first fuzzy look at the uniforms to be worn by the Capitol police force. That’s some crisp white, and those visors are awfully shiny. The uniforms make the simple cotton shirts on the District 12 boys look even dingier than they otherwise would, a visual clue to the sharp class distinctions that the story explores.
