24 Advance Screenings for #HungerGames24! Wednesday 29 February, 2012
As you’ve probably noticed by now, Lionsgate has done something special for each “movie countdown milestone” we’ve hit. For #HungerGames100, they launched a massive puzzle hunt that led to the formation of a brand new poster. For #HungerGames74, Capitol Couture was revealed and we learned that advance tickets would go on sale on February 22. For #HungerGames50, 50 websites began contests to give away 100 tickets to the world premiere of the film in Los Angeles.
As of today, there are only 24 days left until March 23rd! And wow…do we have news for you!
In celebration of #HungerGames24, Lionsgate has announced 24 Advance Screenings presented by Nook by Barnes & Noble.
