“The magical thing about the Hunger Games trilogy is that the books have such a vastly broad appeal,” Joe Drake, Lionsgate co-COO and Motion Picture Group president 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 Hunger Games is still filming but it's sequel Catching Fire has already gotten it's release date fro Thanksgiving weekend 2013!
Catching Fire is the second film in the Hunger Games franchise based on the books by Suzanne Collins. The big screen adaptation is set to premiere in theaters March 23, 2012.
Seems to me like they know the first movie's going to be a hit and they don't want to let the excitement die down...or the stars of the movie to run off.
Hopefully it lives up the book fans expectations.
