Lots of news has been flowing in for the upcoming Gary Ross directed film THE HUNGER GAMES and here’s a little more to whet your appetite – are you ready? The sequel to the film, which will be entitled CATCHING FIRE, will be released on November 22, 2013. If you have your calendar ready for that year then mark it down!
CATCHING FIRE will be released on Thanksgiving weekend in 2013 and here’s what Joe Drake, the co-COO of Lionsgate said, “The magical thing about the Hunger Games trilogy is that the books have such a vastly broad appeal. The stories truly offer something for everyone, and the period around the Thanksgiving weekend is such an opportunity for families and friends to make an event of going to the movies.” Isn’t that a nice sentiment? I think so.
So, THE HUNGER GAMES will be released on March 23, 2012 and follows Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) as they are entered into the 74th annual Hunger Games, which is a battle to the death against the eleven other districts. Other actors that will be joining Lawrence and Hutcherson in the films include: Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz and Stanley Tucci.
