My Hunger Games - Filming in Hildebran

The North Carolina Film Commission says preliminary figures show that the filming of  The Hunger Games pumped 62 million dollars into the local economy.

The Hunger Games was filmed around Asheville, Shelby, Hildebran and Charlotte, and ticket pre-sales have already broken box office records surpassing the Harry Potter and Twilight films!

Local businesses say the making of the movie generated a lot of business for them while crews and cast were there, and they expect the revenue stream to continue as people travel to see where “The Hunger Games” was made.
