“The Hunger Games” hits theaters March 23. The world premiere of “The Hunger Games,” will be held in downtown Los Angeles Monday night. The film “The Hunger Games” is the Lionsgate’s adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ bestselling novel of the same name.
The movie will open to the general public in more than 3,000 theaters on March 23. Young women report overwhelming interest in seeing the movie. NRG says that 74 percent of young women say they have “definite” interest in seeing it, and 45 percent say it is their “first choice.”

The PG-13 movie stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Wes Bentley, Lenny Kravitz and Donald Sutherland.

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games.  A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy.  If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
