ODDS EVER IN VIEWERS’ FAVOR WITH THE EPIX WORLD TELEVISION PREMIERE OF
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE
“Hunger Games Night” starts Saturday, July 26, at 6:30PM ET
NEW YORK, NY, JUNE 30 2014 – EPIX will satisfy viewers’ hunger for all things Katniss Everdeenwith back-to-back viewings of The Hunger Games and the World Television Premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire beginning at 6:30PM ET on Saturday, July 26. The marathon will feature an EPIX exclusive look at the making of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire with never before seen footage.
Based on the Suzanne Collins novel, the blockbuster smash film The Hunger Games follows the journey of Katniss Everdeen (OSCAR® winner Jennifer Lawrence) who is chosen at random to compete to the death in the televised Hunger Games. As she fights to survive, Katniss becomes an unlikely symbol of hope for the downtrodden residents of the Districts of Panem. In The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the top-grossing film of 2013, President Snow (Donald Sutherland), fearful of an uprising in the Districts, decides to hold an “all-star” Hunger Games edition wherein all previous winners will compete again in the hope that Katniss may not be as lucky the second time around.
