However, in order to read the full article, the person would have to login or subscribe to The Straits Times.
Many thanks to our readers, @rebeccaeeyueeyu and Genevieve, we have a scanned copy of the article in the 30 December 2011 issue of The Straits Times.
‘The Hunger Games’ will be released in Singapore on 22 March 2012.

The whole world will be watching “The Hunger Games” indeed! Hunger Games fans had voted vigorously during voting period and eventually beaten out other hot favorites such as ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1’, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, ‘The Avengers’, ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ and ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’. Movies such as ‘Prometheus’, ‘Skyfall’ and ‘Dark Shadows’ were also in the running.
Here’s what MTV has to say:
In one of the bigger upsets of these end-of-year polls, Katniss KO’d Bella (Batman, Spider-Man and Snow White, too). Not bad work for a character who hasn’t even been seen on the big screen yet. The approaching year is easily the most exciting in recent memory; when “The Hobbit,” “The Amazing Spider-Man” and a new Bond film don’t even crack the top three you know 2012 is shaping up to be a cinematic year for the ages. What’s more, the “Hunger Games” win has got to come as welcome news to Lionsgate as the studio prepares to launch a new YA-adapted franchise the same year as the “Twilight Saga” finishes up its box-office run. — E.D.
We are sure Lionsgate will be delighted to hear there’s such a overwhelming support for ‘The Hunger Games’ even though this is the first movie yet to be released!
Don’t forget to vote for ‘The Hunger Games’ in Next Movie Most Anticipated Movie poll! The poll will close on December 26, 2011 at 11 p.m US time so ‘The Hunger Games’ still need your votes!
Cathay Cineplexes Pte Ltd has posted a new status on their Facebook wall which includes ‘The Hunger Games’ teaser poster with comment that ‘The Hunger Games’ trailer will premiere before ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1’. Besides that, Cathay Cineplexes also stated that ‘The Hunger Games’ will be released on 22 March 2012 in Cathay Cineplexes as shown in the screenshot below.
We had reported previously that Cathay Cineplexes will be released on 23 March 2012. What does this means for Hunger Games fans in Singapore? Could it be that we will be able to watch it earlier than fans in United States of America?
We are trying to get a confirmation from Cathay Cineplexes at the moment to ensure this is not a typo. So hold on your horses and keep your fingers crossed!
Update 1 – 25 November 2011: We had went to The Cathay to watch ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1’ and ‘The Hunger Games’ full trailer is indeed attached to it! You can watch ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1’ at any Cathay Cineplexes outlet to catch ‘The Hunger Games’ full trailer!
Update 2 – 25 November 2011: Cathay Cineplexes have confirmed that ‘The Hunger Games’ is now tentatively slated to open on March 22, 2012 in Cathay Cineplexes. Check out the screenshot of the confirmation from Cathay Cineplexes below.
