MILWAUKEE (March 23, 2012) – Welcome, welcome, MUSG is pleased to announce the ticket sales for the highly anticipated “Hunger Games” movie, hitting theaters on Friday, March 23, 2012. The “Hunger Games” is a fictional story set in our near future. A war divides North America into districts. The Capitol sets rules for a tournament known as the Hunger Games. Each district offers up two tributes to compete in the games. Only one tribute leaves the arena alive each year. The plot involves a strong heroine, a love triangle, and plenty of action.
MUSG is selling tickets to go to the midnight premiere of this anticipated film. Students can purchase tickets that cover admission to the movie and transportation to and from the theater on March 22, 2012. Freshman Laura Jacobson said, “I have been waiting all year for this movie! I wasn’t sure if my friends and I were going to get there without having a car on campus, so this is the perfect [and cheap] option!”
Fandango.com, a popular online resource for tickets, was overwhelmed with requests for pre-ordered tickets. The Hunger Games is currently the all time record-holder for online ticket sales. The previous champion was “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” in 2012.
“Mockingjay,” the third book in the trilogy, topped the National Bestseller List with sales of more than 450,000 copies in the first week of publication! Since its release in 2010, thousands of copies have continued to run off of bookstore’s shelves.
Tickets are $8 with a valid MUID and can be purchased in the Brooks Lounge. There are a limited number, so buy your ticket for this blockbuster hit as soon as possible! May the odds be ever in your favor.
