On the heels of the big news that Francis Lawrence will be helming CATCHING FIRE comes a press release from Lionsgate that, "due to overwhelming demand," THE HUNGER GAMES will be returning to IMAX screens for a limited one-week only engagement, which begins APRIL 27th.
THE HUNGER GAMES has grossed over $533 million globally since its launch on March 23, including $13.2 million generated from IMAX theatres in its original one week run.
The IMAX release of THE HUNGER GAMES has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
Obviously, this is a one-week only event because MAY 4th brings a little movie called THE AVENGERS to IMAX screens across the country.
