About THE HUNGER GAMES

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games.  A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

 

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy.  If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

 

THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 23.5 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.

 

Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES on March 23, 2012.

Yahoo! Movies Revealed ‘The Hunger Games’ New Trailer And World Premiere On 12 March In LA

While Lionsgate released ‘The Hunger Games’ teaser trailer in August 29 SGT on MTV VMA 2011 and first full trailer during Good Morning America, we had our sneak peek of the new ‘The Hunger Games’ trailer.

In celebration of 50 days left to release of ‘The Hunger Games’ movie in USA, Yahoo! Movies exclusively revealed the new trailer for ‘The Hunger Games’ movie!

Lionsgate has now uploaded the new trailer on their ‘The Hunger Games’ YouTube channel! Check it out below!

Yahoo! Movies also revealed ‘The Hunger Games’ world premiere will be held in Los Angeles on Monday, 12 March 2012, at Nokia Theater in the LA Live complex which the whole cast of ‘The Hunger Games’ movie will attend.

On a side note, Yahoo! Movies and 49 other sites are also holding premiere giveaways for fans to win tickets to ‘The Hunger Games’ premiere in Los Angeles. Head over to #HungerGames50 to find out more.

While most of ‘The Hunger Games’ premiere tickets giveaway to LA are open only to US residents, Collider.com is opening this contest to international fans where a lucky winner will get to win a pair of tickets to ‘The Hunger Games’ world premiere in LA on 12 March 2012!

Since there will most likely be quite a few entries, we want to make sure that the tickets go to a true fan of the series. In order to enter the contest, we want you to tell us what district of Panem you think you would represent and why.  There’s no minimum or maximum requirement for how long your entry should be, so feel free to write as much (or as little) as you’d like.

Please send your entry to thecollidermailbox@gmail.com with THE HUNGER GAMES Premiere in the subject line, and be sure to include your full name and a phone number where we may reach you in the body of your submission.  Also, only one entry per person.

Entries will be accepted no later than February 22th at 5pm PST.  The winner will be contacted a day or two after, and we’ll announce who won on Collider February 29th.

Finally, just to be clear, this contest is open to everyone!  You can live in Los Angeles, London, Madrid, even Moscow.  Everyone is welcome to enter.  However, you are responsible for all costs to attend the premiere.  We’re just providing two tickets to the event (for you and a guest). That’s why we’re ending the contest on February 22.  It’ll give whoever wins a chance to make travel plans and not pay a fortune.

Head over to the official Hunger Games Facebook page to learn more about the premiere and if you have any questions ask Steve on Twitter.

‘The Hunger Games’ will be released in Singapore on 22 March 2012.
