There’s only 23 days left until the release of the Lionsgate feature film The Hunger Games. So, it’s a perfect time to get a contest going, right? Sponsored by the studio itself, fans in 24 different cities can enter to win an early screening of the film. This contest will be based on the number of tweets relating to a hashtag specific to their city. The top four cities will then get advanced screening of the film. Interested?

Here is the press release with a bit more info.
In celebration of another milestone in the countdown to the release of THE HUNGER GAMES- with under 24 days until the film’s release mirroring the 24 tributes in the story, Lionsgate® has announced 24 Advance Screenings brought to you by NOOK® by Barnes & Noble.
Fans can show their support for #HungerGames24 by visiting Screenings.TheHungerGamesMovie.com and tweeting a unique hashtag assigned to their closest city to unlock Advance Screening locations. Starting tomorrow, March 1, the top four cities with the most Twitter volume will be announced each day and fans will then be able to enter to win tickets to those locations.
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. To locate participating Barnes & Noble stores, visit www.nook.com/hungergames.
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.
Sounds pretty pleasing huh?
Anyhow, besides that awesome contest, our friends at Oh No They Didn’t got a hold of a ton of scans from The Hunger Games Companion. The shots give us a better inside look at the sets, costumes and tributes that make up The Hunger Games.
