‘Hunger Games’ Sequel ‘Catching Fire’ Gets Release Date

Monday, August 8 by

Lionsgate announced today that it will release Catching Fire, the adaptation of the second book in Suzanne CollinsHunger Games trilogy, on November 22, 2013, just in time for Thanksgiving. Studios are really on the ball recently with setting sequel release dates. Just last week Sony announced the release date of The Amazing Spider-man 2. I don’t have a French Bulldog wall calendar for 2013 yet, studios!

The Catching Fire announcement was made by Joe Drake, co-COO of Lionsgate and President of its Motion Picture Group. Said Drake of the date:

“The magical thing about the Hunger Games trilogy is that the books have such a vastly broad appeal.  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.”

So rip off a turkey leg and bring it to the theater with you. There’s no time to enjoy the holiday with your family. Kids are murdering each other and you have to see who wins.
