Today, advance tickets are on sale for the adaptation of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games. In case fans forget that the movie will open in IMAX as well, the studio has released a new banner poster that shows protagonist Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) taking aim with her bow and arrow. Lionsgate clearly hopes the movie is on target to be a massive hit so it can greenlight Hunger Games sequels.
The story is set in a dystopian future where "tributes" from the 12 districts are randomly selected to participate in The Hunger Games, a televised fight to the death. Elizabeth Banks, who plays District 12 escort Effie Trinket, told MTV that she was "excited to see the actual Games." She also admitted that the Reaping, the ceremony where Effie publicly selects tributes, was the most difficult scene to shoot. more about the Reaping + the two TV spots >> Posted 02.22.12 by Ryan
