Lionsgate will follow in the footsteps of the successful ‘Harry Potter‘ and ‘Twilight‘ franchises by splitting ‘Mockingjay’ — the final story in the ‘Hunger Games‘ trilogy — into two parts.
The juggernaut known as ‘The Hunger Games’ shows no signs of slowing down — it sold another $33.5 million in tickets to take the top spot at the box office for the third weekend in a row.
You could say ‘The Hunger Games’ did well in its debut, but that would be a vast understatement — with $155 million in revenues, the film adaptation of the best-selling novel left the other movies in the dust and moved easily to the top of the charts this weekend.
It’s been a series of best selling teen novels and a much anticipated movie release, and now ‘The Hunger Games’ has achieved legendary status because it has been spoofed and spoofed and spoofed again on the Web. And, this seems like a trend that isn’t going to stop any time soon.
