While ‘The Hunger Games’ is distributed by Cathay-Keris Films in Singapore and is scheduled to be open in Cathay Cineplexes on 22 March 2012, there was no doubt people were wondering if other local cinemas will screen it as well.
‘The Hunger Games’ was also listed with a running time of 90 minutes on Shaw’s website. We had sent an inquiry to Shaw so hold on to your horses while we verify if this is the real running time for ‘The Hunger Games’ movie. Cathay Cineplexes on the other hand, does not have a running time listed for ‘The Hunger Games’ on their website yet.
With ‘The Hunger Games’ being listed in Shaw’s website as one of the “Coming Soon” movies, we couldn’t help wondering if Shaw will be screening ‘The Hunger Games’ in IMAX too as we had previously reported ‘The Hunger Games’ will have a week run in IMAX in USA.
As the only two IMAX theaters in Singapore are OMNIMAX at Singapore Science Centre and Shaw Theatres Lido IMAX at Shaw House, we think this might actually be a step forward to the possibility of ‘The Hunger Games’ will be screened in IMAX in Shaw.
We will update this post when we hear anything new from Shaw.
Updated on 8th February 2012: Cathay-Keris Films, the distributor for ‘The Hunger Games’ movie in Singapore has confirmed with us the running time for ‘The Hunger Games’ movie is not fixed yet. 90 minutes of running time for ‘The Hunger Games’ as stated on Shaw’s website is not true.
‘The Hunger Games’ will be released in Singapore on 22 March 2012.
