Lionsgate Partners With The Award Winning Morning Show To Air Highly Anticipated Footage From The Film On November 14th, 2011

 

SANTA MONICA, CA (November 10, 2011) - LIONSGATE® (NYSE: LGF), leading global entertainment company, today announced an exclusive partnership with ABC’s Good Morning America to world premiere the highly anticipated trailer for THE HUNGER GAMES. 

 

The debut will be hosted in person by actor Josh Hutcherson (THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT), who plays the pivotal character of Peeta Mellark in the film, in the top rated 8:00 hour of the show on Monday, November 14th.  In addition to airing nationwide, the trailer will also be shown in its entirety on Good Morning America’s jumbotron in New York City’s Times Square. 

 

The partnership, which further distinguishes the film as a major motion picture event, will mark the first time ever that audiences will be exposed to sights and sounds from the film such as Katniss’ home district 12 and the opulent Capitol.  With 16 million copies of The Hunger Games in circulation, a vast audience of book fans will also undoubtedly tune in for the first chance to hear the beloved characters speak iconic lines of dialogue from its pages. 

 

About THE HUNGER GAMES

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games.  Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

 

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy.  If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

 

THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.  

 

Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES on March 23, 2012.

Santa Monica, CA, September 13, 2011–  “We Are All Warriors,” a national grassroots and online initiative to identify the everyday heroes and real life warriors among us that was inspired by the release of the powerful film WARRIOR has culminated in winner Matt Long being chosen to host a free hometown premiere of the film at his local AMC Theatre.  The screening will take place Wednesday, Sept. 14.  

 

Matt Long is a celebrated New York City firefighter, a 9/11 survivor, a champion athlete, and an author. His powerful contest submission, which was randomly chosen from those received in the contest, can be viewed here.  Long’s book “The Long Run,” was published by Rodale and is now out in paperback. 

 

During the past six weeks, Warriors throughout the country flocked to www.WeAreAllWarriors.com to nominate their local heroes and answer the question, "What do you fight for?" The project and contest were promoted by several high profile editorial partners, including MMA Weekly, Impact Wrestling, LIVESTRONG, JustJared, BeliefNet, and The Huffington Post.  More than 500 submissions were ultimately garnered, making “We Are All Warriors” one of Lionsgate’s most successful user generated contests to date.

 

“We are thrilled and honored that Matt Long is the winning everyday warrior,” said Lionsgate’s Chief Marketing Officer Tim Palen.  “He truly has a fighting spirit, and is the living embodiment of everything this powerful film is about– resolve, strength of character, athleticism, and courage.  Audiences and critics alike have loved this film, but I think it will make an even more special impact on Matt and his family & friends, because it speaks so directly to his warrior spirit.”

About Matt Long

Matt Long has been a competitive athlete his entire life. As a member of his high school basketball team, he was required to run in the Brooklyn/Queens X-country Championships. With no prior running experience, he finished fifth for his school, completing the race in uncomfortable high top sneakers. At Iona College, he competed in their Division I basketball program for which a high level of fitness was mandatory.

 

Strength and endurance became especially paramount in his life after college when he became a New York City Firefighter. It was around this time he took up distance running and began competing in Ironman triathlons, finishing his first Ironman race in 2005. He then set his sights on qualifying for the Boston marathon by running the ING NYC marathon later that year. With hard work, dedication and persistence, he trimmed 30 minutes off his personal best to run a 3:13, qualifying for the 2006 Boston event.

 

On the morning of Dec. 22, 2005, Matt Long's life changed in an instant. He was cycling to work in the early morning when he was struck and run over by a 20-ton bus making an illegal turn. The injuries he sustained pushed him to the brink of death. He received 68 units of blood in the first 40 hours after the accident and spent five months in the hospital. More than 40 operations later, he finally began a grueling rehabilitation regime. Matt found the psychological consequences of the accident nearly as hard to process as the physical severities. His doctor had told him he'd be lucky to ever walk again without a cane.

 

Matt fought through months of fear, despair, loneliness, and intense physical and psychological pain to regain the life he once had. His recovery was a miraculous one which included everything from learning to walk again and, a mere three years later, running in the 2008 New York City Marathon. "Running saved my life," Matt says, and his determination and perseverance has turned him into a symbol of hope and recovery for countless others.

 

Matt's story was covered in a wildly popular article in the March 2009 edition of Runner's World magazine. Matt has since chronicled his life and journey both before and after the accident in his book The Long Run, released in October 2010. Matt has also started the I WILL Foundation which provides coaching, training and financial support to help people overcome adversity and challenges caused by illness or traumatic injury.

 

He currently resides in New York City.

 

About “We Are All Warriors”

“We Are All Warriors” was an opportunity for people all over the country to join together to share their stories and answer the central question of WARRIOR: “What Do You Fight For?” From our teachers and coaches to our athletes and veterans, we all fight for something – we are all warriors.  At www.WeAreAllWarriors.com, project participants answered the question in their own words, nominated other everyday warriors, voted for their favorite warriors, and rallied friends and family to share their contender via Facebook and Twitter.  

 

We Are All Warriors” was promoted through media, corporate and non-profit partnerships on both national and local levels.  With word first spreading through a series of ESPN-sponsored screenings of the inspiring film, the program culminated in a national promotion with AMC Theatres centered around a sweepstakes where one everyday warrior would receive a free hometown premiere of the film at the nearest AMC theatre. 

 

The website featured video diaries from both everyday warriors and celebrity guests including prominent bloggers, parents, coaches, troops, actors athletes, and pastors, answering the film’s central question ‘What Do You Fight For?’ in their own words.
