Hunger Games Movie
March 2, 2012 by staff
Hunger Games Movie, The first installment of the “Hunger Games” trilogy hits movie theaters in three weeks and if you haven’t heard of it, you will soon enough. Big time. Based on the young adult novels by Suzanne Collins, the Gary Ross-directed movie is on pace to be the biggest pop culture phenomenon since the “Twilight” and “Harry Potter” series.
The movie stars young actors Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth as a trio of teens fighting to stay alive in Panem, a dystopian society that forces its citizens to pay tribute by fighting to the death on live television.
In the real world, fans are just fighting for tickets to see the film.
The movie is so hotly anticipated that on the first day that advance tickets were offered on Fandango, one month before the movie’s March 23 opening, sales accounted for 83% of the website’s totals. Even more telling, these advance ticket sales broke a Fandango record originally held by the third film im the “Twilight Saga.”
“‘The Hunger Games’ is off to a fantastic start,” Rick Butler, executive vice president and general manager of Fandango, said. “We saw the biggest first day advance ticket sales in our company’s nearly 12-year history – which is especially impressive for a March release and a non-sequel.”
So it should come as no surprise that according to a Fandango poll, “The Hunger Games” is the most anticipated franchise of the year.
Still, not everyone is aware of this new cultural phenomenon.
