The Hunger Games have become one of the hottest franchises launching their young stars (Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, just to name a few) into the A-list genre of Hollywood as well as hordes of fans, globally. With a franchise being as popular, rumors already began to circulate that there would be a theme park alla Harry Potter in the works. To think, those plans all circulated around the success of the first film.
Today, Lionsgate revealed their plans to launch “The Hunger Games: The Exhibition” U.S. tour set to hit the road in 2015 while talks for that theme park are still in works. The exhibition will include displays of costumes, props, and other elements of the films. The production company has brought in Thinkwell Group to help with the launch.
According to Lionsgate, the exhibition will be placed in “major museums and institutions.”
“Now that we’ve built a critical mass of intellectual property, we’re committed to extending our brands into exciting new businesses that create opportunities for our fans to engage with our properties at the same time they deliver significant incremental financial benefits to Lionsgate,” said Lionsgate chief marketing officer Tim Palen.
The exhibition will be launched several months before the Nov. 25, 2015 release of the fourth and final film, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay–Part 2. As of now, the first two films have grossed over $1.5 billion at the box office, worldwide.
