Back to 2012 Preview: Blockbusters
'The Hunger Games'
Release date: March 23, 2012
For fans of Suzanne Collins's best selling 'Hunger Games' trilogy, 2012 is certainly in their favor. The first installment of what will likely be the next great YA franchise arrives in theaters this March, hoping to set the screen on fire like Katniss's Cinna-produced dress. Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks and Woody Harrelson, 'The Hunger Games' is poised to become the next 'Harry Potter'/'Twilight'; whether it does, remains to be seen.
