I’ve always said that IMAX is the best way to view movies where kids fight to the death. Sadly, there’s no Battle Royale IMAX in the works, so I guess we’ll settle with Gary Ross’ adaptation of The Hunger Games. In addition to the film’s wide release on March 23rd, the film will also begin a one-week IMAX run on the same day. I have no idea if the scope of The Hunger Games is worth an IMAX release, but I’d rather see movies converted into that format than into 3D.
Hit the jump to check out the press release and the latest trailer. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, and Lenny Kravitz.
