CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- They shot much of the movie here in the Charlotte region, and now legions of fans are desperately waiting for ‘Hunger Games’ to hit theaters next month.
Charlotte could host a special screening of the movie, and NewsChannel 36 has learned about a contest that could help make that happen.
‘Hunger Games’ includes actors Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland, and Lenny Kravitz. Popular actress Jennifer Lawrence plays the lead role of Katniss Everdeen, a young girl who takes her sister's place in a real-life survival contest.
To win the special screening, fans are supposed to send a special message on Twitter. The message should have this hash tag #hungergames24CHA.
