The highly anticipated The Hunger Games set a US box office record on its opening night. However, the US gross for the weekend was third best behind the $169.2 million opening for the “Harry Potter” finale and the $158.4 million for “The Dark Knight.” Not a bad haul for the former struggling Lion’s Gate Entertainment!
To honor its star, Jennifer Lawrence, I have adjusted one of the publicity photos to create a Mona Lisa parody. Might be somewhat ironic since Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa is known for her smile, while Katniss is dead serious in the battle for her life. But what the heck, she looks cool in the Mona Lisa pose against the misty background!
It was a challenge to get her to serenely fold her arms and hold the bow in her hand in a relaxed pose. Hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed fiddling around trying to get it to look right. <"sigh">
