Before “The Hunger Games” premieres on March 23, there’s a lot of Katniss-related mania to participate in.
Tickets for the highly anticipated movie went on sale Wednesday. Fandango tells Celebritology that advance tickets for the film accounted for 83 percent of their Wednesday sales. (For reference, Tyler Perry’s “Good Deeds” and “Act of Valor,” both opening Friday, each accounted for two percent.) Information from Movietickets.com was not available at press time.
Super fans who don’t have an aversion to sleeping outside have been invited to camp overnight near the Nokia Theatre ahead of the March 12 world premiere. Four hundred campers, who must RSVP in advance, will be given tickets to the premiere. (Visions of “Twilight” dance through my head.)
Still, one doesn’t need to sleep on pavement to get a glimpse of the “Hunger Games” cast. Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and other actors from the film will make stops on a mall tour, beginning March 3, in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Seattle, Phoenix, Dallas, Miami, Chicago and Minneapolis. (Sorry, East Coast.) The combination of cast members who will be in attendance to answer questions changes with each location.
Two new TV spots, one that shows off Katniss’s impressive archery skills, have also been released. Watch them below and let the “Games” begin.
