If you hadn’t made your plans by now, you might be out of luck if you try to catch a midnight screening of “The Hunger Games,” considering many theaters are already sold out. (The movie’s already made more than $1 million from advance ticket sales alone!)
But let’s be honest: Since we’re all a bunch of nerds, plenty of us are going to see the highly anticipated film at midnight. We bought our tickets way back in February — how about you? We caught an advance screening on Monday and are still heading to the theater at midnight, that’s how dedicated we are to this movie. (And how much we loved it the first time around!)
One of the most exciting parts of going to a midnight screening is checking out all the creative costumes fans wear. We’re not dressing up in full Katniss regalia, but we’ve totally been wearing our Mockingjay pin for weeks now.
If you are going at midnight (and if you’re a human who has used the Internet in the past few months) you probably already know this, but “The Hunger Games” is set in a dystopian future whose biggest television event sees teenagers fight to the death on-camera. Our heroine is 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who emerges as the unlikely frontrunner from the very poor District 12. There’s also a little love triangle action, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Tell us: Are you seeing it at midnight? Are you dressing up? (Spill the deets of your costume below!)
