Lionsgate will launch "The Ultimate Hunger Games Fan Sweeps" on Facebook tomorrow, Friday, June 24th. One lucky winner will receive a trip to the set of the highly anticipated film The Hunger Games, which is currently shooting and scheduled for release March 23, 2012.
To enter the sweepstakes, which will run through July 24, fans need to visit THE HUNGER GAMES on Facebook and "like" it. They have the option to submit two additional entries if they share the page with friends. The winner will be announced online the week of July 25. Included in their set visit will be a tour of the set, select meet and greets with some of the cast and crew and autographs.
"We are very excited to welcome a fan to set," says director Gary Ross. "We are grateful to all of the fans for their enthusiasm and support."
About The Hunger Games
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic; the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
Pitted against highly trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson). If she's ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
The Hunger Games is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins' best-selling novel, which has over 3 million copies in print in the United States alone, is the first in a trilogy of novels which have developed a global following.
