Hunger Games Movie Tickets on Sale
Yes, it's about a month away and you can already buy tickets for the midnight release on Friday, March 23 for the movie "Hunger Games." For those of you who are not familiar with the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, it’s the story of a futuristic United States, now called Panem that has crumbled and been split up into 12 districts. Each year, each of the twelve districts gather all of their teenage children and draw one name from each of two giant fishbowls. Those 24 teens are then whisked off to the Capitol where they get complete head to toe makeovers and are put through a series of tests, everything from physical to mental testing. At the start of the Hunger Games, all 24 teens are released into a wilderness custom made for each year's Hunger Games. The winner gets the ultimate prize… they get to live.
The Hunger Games books are absolutely amazing and librarians across the country are comparing circulation and hype to that of Twilight and Harry Potter. The film has already made its mark with the cosmetic industry-China Glaze has announced their line of Capitol Colours, inspired by the Capitol of Panem. Sadly, the collection will not be released until March 23, in conjunction with the movie. To tide you over, you can sit and drool as you surf the Capitol Couture style blog, which is devoted to all things fashion in the upcoming film. If by now you are having trouble concentrating due to lack of focus, you definitely need to sign up for our Hunger Games Movie Release Party at the library on Saturday, March 3 at 2:00 p.m. We will raffle off a Hunger Games READ poster and three of bottles of China Glaze nail color from their Capitol Colours line... 20 days before you can buy it! Registration is required and spaces are limited, so sign up already! Also, if all of this doesn’t pump you up, the sequel to Hunger Games, Catching Fire is already being adapted for the big screen. Save your money and I’ll see you at midnight on Friday, March 23rd for the big day and again in 2013 for the movie release of Catching Fire.
