Game on! Lionsgate has announced to EW that The Hunger Games, the highly anticipated adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ futuristic YA thriller about scrapper Katniss Everdeen and her fight to survive a brutal reality TV contest, will be released on March 23, 2012. Director Gary Ross recently revealed to EW that he aims to go into production of the first installment of Collins’ trilogy later this spring.
Is anyone surprised that it’s a March release? We were thinking it was going to be part of the summer blockbuster season. But we’re still excited because we’re going to see months earlier than anticipated!
