The Hunger Games is going the way to The Twilight Saga and Harry Potter.
Lionsgate announced today that it would split Mockingjay, the final installment in Suzanne Collins' penned trilogy into two movies, the better to maximize profits of course.
The studio even came out with the extended titles and release dates for the films:
- The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 will bow worldwide November 21, 2014.
- The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 will come out on November 20, 2015.
Catching Fire, meanwhile, hits theaters on November 22, 2013.
