We’re all looking forward to next March, when The Hunger Games movie hits the screen. It is quite possibly one of the most anticipated films of 2012.
And for fans like us, it was just as exciting to hear that Lionsgate already has a release date for Catching Fire of November 2013. However it is a whopping 20 months after The Hunger Games will have been seen.
Lionsgate argues that the holiday release of the film will help generate a bigger box office with the period between Thanksgiving (in the US) and Christmas, bringing families by the droves to the cinema. But the question has been posed… will fans still be there after such a huge gap? The Frostburg Books Examiner points out that substantial interest in the film series could fizzle during a 20-month wait, and such a big delay may not help boost the holiday opening.
This long wait may kindle the anticipation, or may very well extinguish the flames of excitement for “Catching Fire.”
So do you agree? Do you think a big gap will mean a loss of interest for Catching Fire
