Tickets to The Hunger Games—the movie sequel, not an actual battle royal to the death—will go on sale on October 1st.

Fans will first be able to scoop up tickets through Fandango, MovieTickets.com and other such websites at 12 p.m. PST (that's 3 p.m. for all of us East Coast folks).

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the second of four films in the series (the third Suzanne Collins book is going to be broken up into two installments because, Hollywood). It's slated for a November 22nd release and, again, stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen.

Midnight premieres, lines around the block, and box office numbers with a lot of zeroes are expected to come handcuffed with Catching Fire, as Variety reports that the world-wide projects suggest the movie will gross $900 million.

David Miller of BRiley & Co. issued a similarly bullish report and repeated his $34 target, predicting that “Catching Fire” will gross $900 million worldwide. That’s 22% above the $691 million gross for “The Hunger Games,” will Miller noting that the popularity of the “Hunger Games” book trilogy has “exploded” overseas since last year’s release of the first film.
