'The Hunger Games' Movie Gets a Release Date

Mark your calendars, tributes! The first movie from The Hunger Games series will hit theaters on March 23, 2012.

I'm about half-way through the final book of The Hunger Games series called Mockingjay (read the review here. No spoilers!) and can't wait to see the books adapted for the big screen! The films star Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, and a ton of other notables like Josh Hutcherson, Liam Helmsworth, Lenny Kravitz and Donald Sutherland -- just to name a few. Meet the full Games cast here.

Keep reading after the jump to see the fiery badass motion poster for the film's release:

If you haven't read The Hunger Games yet you need to start immediately. Trust me, this is a strong recommendation coming from someone who doesn't particularly like to read.
