Over the last month or so Scholastic has announced that four books would be published to coincide with the release of the film adaptation of The Hunger Games.
Now the covers of two of these books — scheduled to be available February 7th, 2012 — have been unveiled; we're displaying them below.
The first of these is The Hunger Games Tribute Guide, described as the ultimate guide to the twenty-four Tributes participating in Panem's 74th annual Hunger Games. Follow the Tributes' journey from the Reaping to the Games, with a look at all the highlights along the way — the Tribute Parade, the stations of the Training Center, the interviews, and more. Get exclusive information about the Tributes' strengths and weaknesses, their weapons of choice, and their experience in the Capitol before entering the arena.
The second is The Hunger Games: Official Illustrated Movie Companion. Go behind the scenes of the making of The Hunger Games with exclusive images and interviews. From the screenwriting process to the casting decisions to the elaborate sets and costumes to the actors' performances and directors' vision, this is the definitive companion to the film.
The Hunger Games is adapted from the young adult thriller of the same title by Suzanne Collins and stars Jennifer Lawrence as 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, chosen to participate as a tribute in an annual live televised event that requires one boy and one girl from each of Panem's 12 districts to compete against each other … to the death. The film opens in US theaters March 23rd, 2012.
