Lionsgate teams up with IMAX
For one week, Lionsgate will release “Hunger Games” in the IMAX format. The movie will run in this format from March 23 to March 30.
“The Hunger Games and IMAX are a match made in heaven,” said Lionsgate Co-Chief Operating Officer Joe Drake. “Fans love this book because its world is so vividly imagined and seeing the film in IMAX will make them feel as if they have landed right in the middle of the action.”
