'The Hunger Games' photos have audiences quivering with anticipation

Lionsgate is whetting people's appetite for the upcoming release of "The Hunger Games" by releasing two new production photos from the movie.

The film, based on the YA science-fiction novel by Suzanne Collins, focuses on a young girl, Katniss ( Jennifer Lawrence), who fights to save her community in a post-apocalyptic world.

But you probably already knew that because you've read the books.
