The release of Gary Ross’s highly anticipated adaptation of The Hunger Games is now officially 100 days away. To celebrate the occasion, Lionsgate is unveiling a new poster for the feature film. Ah, if it were only that easy. In order to take a gander at the poster, fans will have to put together puzzle pieces via the #HUNGERGAMES100 Poster Puzzle Hunt. The studio has given 100 sites 100 different puzzle pieces to debut today. We’ve got piece number 60/100 here on Collider, but fans will need to do a bit of hunting to find the other 99 pieces. Luckily, Lionsgate has streamlined the process through Twitter and Facebook. Hit the jump to find out how you can help unveil the new poster. The Hunger Games opens on March 23rd, 2012. [Update: The poster has been unveiled, and a high resolution version is now included after the jump.]

In order to find the remaining puzzle pieces, head over to Twitter and search for the hashtag #HungerGames100. Once you’ve downloaded all the pieces and put them together, post the completed poster on Facebook. After the first person solves the puzzle by uploading the completed image to Facebook and @tagging The Official Hunger Games Movie Page , the poster will be released to all. I quite enjoyed the character posters released by Lionsgate back in October, and as a big fan of the books I’m intrigued to see what this new poster has in store. So get crackin’ Hunger Games fans.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Hunger Games:
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
THE HUNGER GAMES will be directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Collins’ best-selling novel, which has over 3 million copies in print in the United States alone, is the first in a trilogy of novels which have developed a global following.
