N.C. anticipates major increase in tourism thanks to Hunger Games

From the Mountain Times:

According to N.C. Tourism Office, North Carolina is poised to reap major dividends from tourism with the March 23 opening of “The Hunger Games,” a film the office is calling “the highest-profile movie ever made in the state.”

Shot on locations and sets from Concord to Barnardsville and starring Jennifer Lawrence (“Winter’s Bone”), Woody Harrelson (“The Messenger”) and Elizabeth Banks (“Definitely, Maybe”), the Lionsgate release is based on the opening novel in a wildly popular futuristic trilogy by Suzanne Collins.
