Josh Hutcherson, Alexander Ludwig & Liam Hemsworth in The Hunger Games
After much anticipation, I'm thrilled to confirm that on Monday, March 19, 2012, Toronto will be playing host to a Red Carpet Premiere for The Hunger Games at Scotiabank Theatre. Above this, we also will be welcoming Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and Cato (Alexander Ludwig) to the 416 in yet another exciting Premiere from Alliance Films, who this year alone have given us much to cheer for with The Woman in Black and Goon.

This first installment in what looks to be a thrilling Trilogy based on the best-selling novels by Suzanne Collins, takes place in Panem, a futuristic replacement for North America torn apart by war and famine. 24 Participants representing 12 Districts will be forced to eliminate one another in a series of televised Games, as Citizens are required to watch-on. Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) sacrifices her life by offering to go in place of her younger Sister, whose name is drawn through a lottery. Will she and her male counterpart Peeta survive this battle against others, including some who have trained most of their lives for this?
