Catching Fire to Set Thanksgiving 2013 Ablaze

The Hunger Games is still months away from release and news arises from Lionsgate that they already have a date for its sequel.

Hardly a surprise, since The Hunger Games is one of the most popular literary series of the last decade with each successive book only fanning the fire fans possess for the franchise.

The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, will debut November 23, 2013 while its predecessor storms into theaters March 23.

Lionsgate Co-Chief Operating Officer Joe Drake issued a statement about the sequel announcement coming before the first film has even premiered. “The magical thing about The Hunger Games trilogy is that the books have such a vastly broad appeal,” Drake said. “The stories truly offer something for everyone, and the period around the Thanksgiving weekend is such an opportunity for families and friends to make an event of going to the movies.”

The third film, Mockingjay, will likely see its release sometime in mid-2014 — probably during the blockbuster summer season.

Two New Hunger Games Photos Debut

Jennifer Lawrence looks fierce in the next series of photos from the highly anticipated film The Hunger Games. Also appearing quite the part is Josh Hutcherson in the latest stills from Lionsgate.

The Hunger Games doesn’t hit theaters until March 23 of next year, yet it would be hard to find a film with more anticipation and news — almost arriving every day.

Based on the phenomenally successful book series by Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games follows its hero, Katniss (Lawrence) as she participates in the titular fight-to-the-death games broadcast to a nation under authoritarian rule.

Some fans of the series scoffed when it was announced that Hutcherson got the part of Peeta, but judging by the first photos, including the one below, the kid has seriously channeled the part and should quiet any critics of the casting.

The Hunger Games is directed by Gary Ross (Seabiscuit, Pleasantville) and could not come soon enough for fans to the local movie house.
