"Hunger Games" is set to hit the big screen on March 23, but fans won't have to wait that long to get their "Hunger Games" fix.
Advanced tickets go on sale tomorrow, and can be purchased through movietickets.com and fandango.com. If you just can't wait until March 23 to see the "Hunger Games" crew in action, the cast will be touring malls around the U.S. to meet and interact with fans, while drumming up publicity for the movie.
The tour starts March 3 at City of Angel's Westfield Century City in Los Angeles, and continues through the U.S. hitting eight other cities including Atlanta, Miami, Phoenix, Dallas, Chicago, Minneapolis, and Seattle. MTV.com reported that each stop will include a meet and greet, as well as a questions and answers session with cast members.
MTV.com reported that the movie's three big stars, Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta Mellark, and Liam Hemsworth, who plays Gale Hawthorne, will all attend the first and last stop on the tour. And at least one of the big three will be at each tour stop along the way.
Exact line-ups for each tour stop can be found on the "Hunger Games" Facebook page. Fans can also RSVP for tour stops on the Facebook page.
The "Hunger Games" film is based on the best selling young adult novel series, penned by Suzanne Collins. The story takes place far in the future, in a post-apocalyptic, unrecognizable North American continent. The continent is divided into 12 districts, and each year, as a consequence for a serious rebellion many years earlier, two children from each district must fight to the death. When Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) finds out her sister is selected to battle, she steps in, volunteering to fight in her sister's place.
The highly anticipated "Hunger Games" movie will be in theaters everywhere March 23.
