Two New Promo Banners Lionsgate's 'The Hunger Games' Revealed
The World Will Be Watching! Two new promo banners have recently debuted for Gary Ross' The Hunger Games movie, being released by Lionsgate next month. I expect to see this up as billboards around town, at least one of them, which is fine by me! One banner comes from their official Facebook, the other comes from a recent debut on Hunger-Games.net, both via HeyUGuys, where they also have new character images from the official website. We're finally getting down to the last few weeks before this arrives, so expect marketing to ramp up big time with more like this. But as someone who is actually excited for this, I say bring it all on.

Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss, a 16-year-old living in the post-apocalyptic country of Panem. Every year, one boy and one girl are chosen from each of Panem's 12 districts to fight each other to their death. Josh Hutcherson plays Peeta, the boy chosen from District 12 for the Hunger Games with Katniss.
The Hunger Games is both written and directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Gary Ross, director of Seabiscuit and Pleasantville previously, but also writer of Big, Mr. Baseball, Dave, Lassie, Pleasantville and Seabiscuit. It's adapted from Suzanne Collins' popular series of novels, first published in 2008. Lionsgate is bringing Hunger Games to theaters everywhere March 23rd, 2012. May the odds be ever in your favor.
