Contest: 'Catching Fire' TickTock Countdown to November Premiere
by Alex Billington
September 12, 2013
The countdown to the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is underway, and we're currently 11 weeks away. To mark the occasion, FirstShowing is one of 75 sites participating in a contest where fans can win tickets to the Los Angeles premiere of the film on November 18th. Today we can announce the details and open up the contest to anyone interested in participating. The event is part of Lionsgate's #TickTock promotion counting down the weeks until the release of Catching Fire. With the games in this sequel being the Quarter Quell, or the 75th Hunger Games, a grand total of 75 outlets are giving away two tickets each.
This contest is officially known as #TickTock11 to mark the 11th week in the countdown to the release of Catching Fire (watch the full trailer). For complete details on the TickTock promo, visit the Hunger Games Explorer website. Advance tickets for the movie go on sale starting October 1st in just a few more weeks. Until then, we're opening up the contest on our site to submit your name/info and win two tickets (for you and a friend) to attend the final premiere on Monday the week of opening - which is a very hot ticket and tough event to get into (we probably can't even get in ourselves!). More details on how to enter found below.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow (Donald Sutherland) prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games, a competition that could change Panem forever. Francis Lawrence directs the film written by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire) and Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3). Catching Fire arrives November 22nd this fall.
