One of the biggest movies of the year, The Hunger Games, is coming to DVD and Blu-Ray on August 18 and it is definitely a must have for fans of the series. The discs will be packed with bonus features that will take you deeper inside the world of Panem and beyond.
The movie features an all-star ensemble of veteran actors and fresh faced newcomers. We have your break down on some of the key actors you should know.
Jennifer Lawrence began acting in 2006 and in 2007 landed a role on “The Bill Engvall Show.” It was her breakout performance in Winter’s Bone, though, that sky rocketed her becoming one of the most sought after young actresses in Hollywood. Jennifer then went on to star in X-Men: First Class and won the lead role in The Hunger Games. She will reprise her role in Catching Fire and can be seen soon in House at the End of the Street and Silver Linings Playbook.
Josh Hutcherson is a veteran of the acting scene winning hearts in movies like Little Manhattan and Zathura at a young age. Josh really caught Hollywood’s eye when he co-starred in the indie hit The Kids Are All Right alongside Annette Bening and Julianne Moore. Josh beat out numerous actors to land the role of the baker’s son in The Hunger Games, a character that he says is most like him. This year, Josh also reprised his role in the Journey To the Center of the Earth franchise.
Liam Hemsworth is an Australian actor that broke out in the US by starring alongside now-fiance Miley Cyrus in Nicholas Sparks’ The Last Song. Like his brother Chris Hemsworth, Liam started on television in Australia with parts on “Home and Away” and “Neighbours.” In addition to the rest of The Hunger Games franchise, Liam can be seen in the star-packed action flick The Expendables 2, Empire State and Paranoia.
Amandla Stenberg may only be 11, but she carries herself with the poise and charisma of someone three times her age, and that’s a good thing! Before landing her big role in The Hunger Games as one of the most beloved characters, she got her big break playing a young Zoe Saldana in Colombiana. We can tell there are big things ahead for this starlet.
Dayo Okeniyi hails from Nigeria and got his lucky break auditioning for The Hunger Games. We have our fingers crossed we’ll get to see him back in Catching Fire in some flashback scenes, perhaps, but for now, he has a bunch of projects lined up including Runner, Runner opposite Justin Timberlake and The Spectacular Now with Shailene Woodley.
Isabelle Fuhrman broke into the Hollywood scene thanks to her terrifying role in the 2009 flick Orphan. In The Hunger Games, she also takes on a menacing role, playing one of the heroine’s main foes alongside Alexander Ludwig. Next up for the 15-year-old: After Earth alongside Will and Jaden Smith.
