'The Hunger Games' Gets Limited One-Week Release on IMAX Screens

February 2, 2012

The Hunger Games

We have just under two months until the big screen adaptation of The Hunger Games hits theaters, and with such a big movie on the horizon, the film deserves a damn big screen. Thankfully, for those who need Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) to be as big as possible, Lionsgate and IMAX have anounced that the film will be digitally remastered to be shown in IMAX theaters when the film is released on March 23rd. However, there's a catch. The film will only remain on digital IMAX screens for one single week. The limited run kind of blows, but that likely means every single IMAX screening will be sold out for that whole week.

As a bonus, here's Jennifer Lawrence and Lenny Kravitz in The Hunger Games (via Rolling Stone):

The Hunger Games - Katniss and Cinna

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.

I love love love Harry potter,a child can defeat the devil!? Answer is yes,he can if he believe.believe in anything himself,parents,a right person or god.then potter is masterpiece.but what was idea for twilight? A girl between love of a vampire and a werewolf? It's interesting idea but not enough for 5movie.moreover that movie was totally fogettable.I wish hunger games take itsown to Harry potter movies until twilight because target of film is entertaining and insolubility.
