Katniss returns to District 12, her home after successfully completing the Hunger Games. In the original movie, the cast is forced to participate in the “Hunger Games” a game of survival that is televised in other districts and the participants fight for their lives for the entertainment of a wealthier class. Now, after winning the games, Katniss embarks on a Victory Tour at the same time a rebellion is forming. During all this, The president Snow announces that a special edition of the games is coming and the special edition will bring back the victors of previous games. Katniss must go back to the Hunger Games as the tribute for her district, District 12. The rebellion quickly spreads through all districts and Katniss becomes the rebellion posted child as she battles for her life in the games.
So far in 2012, The Hunger Games has been the box office leader. The film opened up in March of 2012 in over 4000 theaters and has grossed over $357 million so far. The film was so successful that it kept the top spot for about a month after its release and is still going strong.
The movie has surpassed all estimates and predictions:
The first of four “The Hunger Games” films, about teens fighting for their lives in a post-apocalyptic world, may generate $200 million in domestic box-office sales, according to Matthew Harrigan, an analyst with Wunderlich Securities in Denver who recommends the stock. The movie opens March 23.
The film actually made $152,535,747 in its opening weekend in the US and the momentum has not slowed down yet.
We are sure that the second installment, Catching Fire will do just as well if not better.
Just like the original Hunger Games, Catching Fire will need many extras giving many fans a chance to not only watch, but also participate in the movie they love so much.
The Hunger Games is turning out to be a huge franchise and 3 more films are scheduled to be created. Hopefully 2014 will bring us the Hunger Games 3 and the following year we may see a Hunger Games 4!
The Hunger Games is the #1 movie of 2012 and Catching Fire may take that spot next year in 2013. The film is set to be released in theaters in November of 2013 and filming will begin later this year.
