Lionsgate Builds Anticipation For 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' With Prize Giveaway
The sequel to the incredibly popular 'The Hunger Games' will arrive in cinemas in November, and you could win tickets to the premiere!
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be the second movie version of the popular 'Hunger Games' book series from author Suzanne Collins and following the massive succes of the first movie and the huge fan-base it has developed, the second movie is already drawing heaps of anticipation ahead of it's release. An online campaign is being run that will give some lucky people the chance to attend the premiere of the movie in Los Angeles via the movie's official Facebook page.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Is Coming...
#TickTock11 - referring to the date of the premiere; 11 November - is the name of this campaign that will send 75 different people to LA to watch the movie 11 days before anyone else, and if that wasn't good enough how about the prospect of seeing the film along with Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson and the rest of the cast. Why 75? Because the next film revolves around Katniss and Peeta as they compete in the 75th annual Hunger Games.
The film, which is being distributed through Lionsgate, is already proving to be a more than worthy successor to Harry Potter and Twilight as the pre-teen to teen movie obsession for the masses, and before the second film has even been released studio bosses are already counting their money.
Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer spoke to the company's stockholders about the future potential the franchise possesses in Toronto this month, explaining how the first film helped the company's stock rise five-fold over the last two years. He predicted that the next movie and the subsequent sequels lined up will amass an even greater value for the company's share prices, Variety reports.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be released in cinemas and IMAX worldwide on 22 November.
