‘The Hunger Games’ Advance Screenings

The Hunger Games is going to be this month’s mega blockbuster. Universal and Barnes & Noble are putting on some separate advanced screenings.

Lionsgate Films and Universal have put together a pretty cool twitter campaign based on the story of The Hunger Games. The film’s website encourages select cities to host advance screenings for 24 people based on their tweets.  Here’s the press release:

In the story, Tributes are sponsored based on their first impression at the opening ceremonies, training scores, impressions made in the interviews, performance in the arena, as well as a number of other factors. Donations from sponsors range from medicines to food to weapons and more. Because of this, Lionsgate brought on 12 DISTRICT SPONSORS to each host two of these Advance Screenings and offer 24 fans the chance to win a pair of tickets.

The digital campaign follows those for #HungerGames100, #HungerGames74, and #HungerGames50 which marked milestones in the campaign with similar interactive fan activities.

Be sure to register for a District here and learn more about how to impress your sponsors on Facebook. Fans who don’t have an advance screening near them may be able to meet and greet the cast at their local mall during the National Mall Tour beginning in March.

Barnes & Noble are offering 2 free tickets to an advance screening with every Nook purchased on March 10th.

Here’s more info from the press release:

In addition, Barnes & Noble is giving NOOK fans in select cities the opportunity to gain exclusive access to see THE HUNGER GAMES before its official theatrical release. On March 10, while supplies last, the first customers to purchase any of Barnes & Noble’s award-winning NOOK devices – including NOOK Tablet™, NOOK Color™ or NOOK Simple Touch™ – at select Barnes & Noble stores will receive two complimentary tickets to the official Advance Screening on March 21.
