Local Movie Goers Hungry For "Hunger Games"

The "Hunger Games" is one of the most anticipated movies so far this year- even more so for some in our state because the movie was shot here.

We checked out the Carmike Theater in Greenville where several people were waiting for tickets for the midnight showing. A few were reserved for people who showed up to buy tickets in person but online tickets sold out quickly.

The movie with a hundred million dollar budget shot all over our state: In Asheville, Charlotte, Concord, Hildebran, and Shelby.

If you haven't read the book, the "Hunger Games" is about a post-apocalyptic world in which a highly advanced metropolis holds absolute power over the rest of the nation. The "Hunger Games" are an annual event in which one boy and one girl aged 12 to 18 from each district are selected by lottery to compete in a televised battle in which only one person can survive.
