The Hunger Games hosts 15 certificate screening and O2 reaping
Story by Jack Foley
TO MARK the release of The Hunger Games on 2-disc DVD, 2-disc Blu-Ray, TVOD and digital download on Monday, September 3, 2012, London’s O2 Arena played host to a very exciting event on Thursday night (August 30, 2012).
Fans were treated to an exclusive screening of the 15 certificate version of the movie, previously not screened in the UK, hosted by friends of Panem and top UK entertainment site Digital Spy.
To let fans get even closer to the action and really fill the shoes of Katniss Everdeen the screening was hosted at Cineworld at the O2’s D-Box theatre so attendees could feel every heart-wrenching moment of the games!
As well as the chance for fans to see the 15 certificate of the hit film, 12 lucky competition winners also had the amazing opportunity to ascend the O2 to take part in a live reaping on top of the Arena itself.
The winning tribute, Ryan Crane from Leytonstone, London, received a pair of tickets to the World Premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire for his bravery and courage in scaling the famous London structure!
He commented: “The event was brilliant, it was really windy when we got to the top and really dramatic. I’m so excited to be going to the world premier, it was so unexpected. I dorkily hugged the guy when I won, it was quite embarrassing!”
