Today marks 74 days until the 74th Hunger Games—that is, the release of Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games in theaters on March 23, 2012. To commemorate the auspicious occasion, the studio has revealed when you can start buying your movie tickets: Wednesday, February 22, 2012.
You can set up a reminder — as if you’d forget the date! — via text message or e-mail by RSVPing on the movie’s official Facebook page. You can also follow along on Twitter using the hashtag #HungerGames74. On the 22nd, tickets will go on sale on Fandango and MovieTickets.com. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ll probably need at least two viewings of the movie, so it’s good to snatch up the first round of tickets now, considering how big the fandom is.
