The film adaption of The Hunger Games, a popular young adult trilogy set in a post-apocalyptic dsytopian world, is not set to release until March 23rd. But Lionsgate noted that today marks 74 more days until the film releases:

To celebrate this milestone, they announced that advance tickets sales for The Hunger Games film will begin on February 22nd via movietickets.com and fandango.com.

The Hunger Games follows the story of 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen from District 12. North America is in ruins, separated in to several districts and  renamed Panem. After an uprising against the Panem government failed, the government started the Hunger Games as a cruel form of punishment and retribution. The  Hunger Games is yearly, live televised event that requires one randomly chosen “tribute” from each district. These tributes are between the ages of 11 to 18, and they must fight to the death as there can only be one winner. During the drawing for the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss’ little sister Prim is chosen as District 12’s tribute. Katniss volunteers to take her sisters place.  Now she must prepare to face the brutality and danger waiting for her in the games.

On a personal note, I’d like to add that despite The Hunger Games being labeled “young adult,” they are accessible for adults as well. I tore through all three books last year and loved them. There’s more to it than meets the eye. I don’t want to give anything away so I won’t say anymore than that, but I highly recommend the books for any fan of post-apocalyptic and dystopian fiction. I also think it’s wonderful that a strong young female is at the center of the book, something direly needed in popular young adult fiction lately.
