The Hunger Games trilogy is going big with its second film, Catching Fire, and has already set the release date for Thanksgiving weekend 2013!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Catching Fire, the second film in the Hunger Games franchise based on Suzanne Collins‘ book trilogy, will hit theaters Nov. 22, 2013.
The Hunger Games is still shooting and won’t be in theaters until March 23, 2012, but Lionsgate has already claimed a date for the sequel.
“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.”
So tell your family and friends to mark their calendars now, Hunger Games fans!
