EOne will release "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" in multiple territories.

The Canadian producer/distributor acquired Alliance Films in a $230 million deal earlier this year.

Canadian media group Entertainment One has seen its rights library reevaluated at more than $650 million following an independent valuation by FTI Consulting Inc.

The valuation is about 85 percent higher than the $350 million value placed on EOne's library in 2012, a boost mainly due to the company's acquisition of fellow Canuck media group Alliance Films in January.
