Lionsgate Publicity Website: Catching Fire

Official Press Release from Lionsgate:


Santa Monica, CA, August 08, 2011– LIONSGATE® (NYSE: LGF), a leading global entertainment company, announced today that it will release CATCHING FIRE, the film adaptation of the second book in Suzanne Collins’ runaway bestselling HUNGER GAMES trilogy, on November 22, 2013.  The announcement was made by Joe Drake, co-COO of Lionsgate and President of its Motion Picture Group.  No further details about CATCHING FIRE have been confirmed at this stage. 

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.”"

I for one am terribly excited that there is already a date set. I guess I wasn't expecting that step to be taken until after production companies saw how good or bad The Hunger Games movie did.
But, voila! A date!
Now, as excited as that makes me, it make a little sad that it's going to be a year and a half after the first one. I like when series movies come out a just about a year after each other. 
No matter though, I will still go and see it.

How about you? Are you excited by this news?


  1. I agree that a year is to perfect time gap for movies to be separated. It feels a bit silly to be already complaining about the wait between the first and second movie though when the first hasn't yet come out, haha!

  2. SO EXCITED!! This whole series should be really excellent!


I love comments, so you should leave me one...or two :D
