As 2011 comes to a close, fans of The Hunger Games are eagerly looking ahead to what will come in the new year — not least among them, the March 23rd theatrical release of The Hunger Games movie. But aside from this obvious milestone, fans have much more to look forward to in 2012.
The Hunger Games red carpet premiere
Before the movie hits theaters, fans will watch the stars of The Hunger Games walk the red carpet for the premiere. Details are unknown at this time — but if it’s anything like the fervor from other franchise red carpet events (such as Harry Potter and Twilight), you can bet there will be lots of screaming. Fans will also get to glimpse the stars in their finest duds and hear them talk about the movie in red carpet interviews.
Midnight release parties
Most fans won’t get to hit up the red carpet premiere, but there will no doubt be midnight release parties for The Hunger Games across the country on March 22nd. If midnight release parties for other franchises are any indication, this madness will no doubt include costumes, themed t-shirts, trivia games, contests, and much more. And of course, it will all culminate at 12:01am on March 23rd, with the first viewings of The Hunger Games on the big screen.
