If you have any worries that Jennifer Lawrence would be passable as a archery expert, this video will definitely ease your mind. You can see in this behind the scenes video, Lawrence practicing her archery skills and talking about the training she did for the film.
Frankly, I think she is going to do a fantastic job. She obviously trained incredibly hard for the film and it really shows.
Just watch the video below!
The Hunger Games is the movie adaptation of the bestselling novel by Suzanne Collins. It is followed by the sequels Catching Fire and Mockingjay.
The plot for the film is as follows:
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the governing body, the Capitol, of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Katniss Everdeen volunteers as a tribute to save her sister from going in to the ghastly arena. She is joined by Peeta Mellark, a boy she knew who once saved her life.
