Having read all three books at a rate of knots over Christmas last year, I am getting somewhat over-excited for Jennifer Lawrence‘s turn as Katniss Everdeen. Fabulous news that the folks at Lionsgate have decided to open the movie on the same day in the UK as the US (March 23rd).
Disappointingly, given that the UK Premiere (14th March) is due to be held at the BFI IMAX in Waterloo, there are no current plans for the venue to screen the film publicly. A bizarre turn of events in my opinion – especially given that the (U.S.-driven) marketing collatoral is proclaiming ‘in theatres and IMAX from March 23rd’ – but there we are.
Until then, let these whet your appetite:
And if you haven’t yet picked up these engrossing page-turners from Suzanne Collins, get reading.
