Lionsgate announces 24 advance screenings for 'Hunger Games'

There are less than 24 days left until the theatrical release of The Hunger Games (did you hear that EW is the official sponsor of District 7?), and in celebration of the countdown, Lionsgate has announced 24 advanced screenings of the film to coincide with the story’s 24 tributes fighting to the death.

“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,” Lionsgate said in a release.

In addition, on March 10, the first customers to purchase any Nook device at select Barnes & Noble stores will receive two complimentary tickets to the official Advance Screening on March 21 (while supplies last). You can find participating Barnes & Noble stores here.

The social media marketing campaign echoes the milestones from past countdowns: #HungerGames100, #HungerGames74 and #HungerGames50. But how many more hashtag activities can fans take before the release? At least one, tribute friends. At least one.

Lost Alfred Hitchcock film discovered 88 years later

Parts of one of Alfred Hitchcock’s earliest films, 1923′s The White Shadow, have been discovered by the New Zealand Film Archive, according to the Associated Press. It is the only known copy of the silent film, which Hitchcock wrote, edited, and served as assistant director and art director. The film’s first three reels (three others remain missing or destroyed) were donated to the Archive in 1993 after the death of a projectionist who had collected old silent films. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills will host a special screening of the film on Sept. 22.

'Hobo With a Shotgun': Check out the new, NSFW poster

Hobo-With-A-ShotgunImage Credit: Karim HussainOne of the most enjoyable 85 minutes I’ve had at the movies recently was spent watching Hobo With a Shotgun, a new, utterly berserk homage to low-budget ’80s action flicks that stars the mighty Rutger Hauer, features lashings of gore-drenched mayhem, and has the decency to last a concise, well, 85 minutes.

Just how violent is the movie? Frankly, that’s something that is hard to put in words. So instead, I’ve posted after the jump the very, very, very, very, VERY gruesome poster which the Alamo Drafthouse cinema’s boutique merch arm Mondo has designed to commemorate the movie’s screenings next week at the SXSW Film Festival, ahead of the film’s May 6 release.

Enjoy! (And/or gag!)

'G.I. Joe': Why hide it from critics?

Movie critics of the world unite! The Man is out to silence you. But hear this — we will not be muzzled. The people will have their say! And make no mistake: G.I. Joe, the motion picture, will pay the price.

Earlier this week, Paramount Pictures confirmed that there would be no advance screenings of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, their big, noisy, deluxe late-summer action-adventure-toy commercial. The infamy of it! The outrage! How dare a major movie studio decide not to screen a film for reviewers? Between this and the current embattled state of the Obama health-care initiative, this country is truly headed for trouble.

I kid, of course; I also beg your indulgence as I rattle on about this inside-media-baseball topic. The truth is that the marketing executives at Paramount have every right, if they so choose, not to screen one of their movies. It may be a boneheaded move, but it’s their prerogative to make it. Yet listening to movie critics, such as Peter Travers of Rolling Stone, work themselves up into a fulminating froth of indignation over this particular corporate decision, you’d think that something truly important was at stake.
