The movie based on the bestselling young adult novel THE HUNGER GAMES is currently filming and scheduled for release in March of 2012, but today the news via the Official Hunger Games Facebook Page is the release of the second book in the trilogy, CATCHING FIRE. The second film has been announced to hit theaters on November 22, 2013. No news for the third film, MOCKINGJAY, which is likely to be the film that gets split into films rather than just one- similar to THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN and HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS.
THE HUNGER GAMES follows a young Katniss Everdeen who has grown up in a dystopian future where twelve districts live in fear of their powerful government, the Capital. As punishment for a revolution ignited by the districts years ago the Capital holds an annual battle to the death called, The Hunger Games. Each district draws the names of a boy and a girl to participate and the last one standing wins riches and fame and a life free from the fear of starvation. Catching Fire and Mockingjay are the continuation of the trilogy of novels.
