The anticipation for “The Hunger Games” is about to reach a squee-worthy boiling point (if it hasn’t already, that is). According to Variety, the first trailer for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2″ is set to screen before “Hunger Games,” when the film opens nationwide March 23.
The “Hunger Games”/”Twilight” marriage makes perfect sense from a financial standpoint. Lionsgate has vampire-like expectations for “Games.” The film is based on the massively popular book series by author Suzanne Collins, so the studio obviously sees it potentially turning into the next “Twilight” film franchise, which has already made more than $ 2.5 billion worldwide.
“The Hunger Games,” starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks, is set to hit theaters on March 23, meaning “Twilight” fans will start lining up outside their local theaters right about … NOW.
