The games will begin in March of 2012.
Lionsgate has set a release date for the highly-anticipated adaptation of “The Hunger Games.” The Gary-Ross directed film will open on March 23, 2012.
Adapted from the best-selling novel by Suzanne Collins, “Games” is the first in a trilogy of stories set in a post-apocalyptic future where 16-year-old heroine Katniss Everdeen must participate in a fight-to-the-death annual event called the Hunger Games. The battles are televised, and pit youths from each of the Capitol’s 12 Districts against each other.
