Hunger Games is kind of a weird phenomena. It somehow became one of the highest grossing movies of each year that it has been released. They are praised by most critic groups and made Jennifer Lawrence a star. Young Adult novels have been a source for films for a while but most of them seem to fail. So far only Twilight and Harry Potter have been really successful and now Hunger Games seems to be the most successful of the three. American audiences love it but foreign audiences have been a little less thrilled for these products. The first one didn’t do much overseas but Hunger Games: Catching Fire seemed to change that. Now I’m curious as to how the next one is going to do. It is clear that it is going to bank at the box office but how much can it make.
Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) finds herself in District 13 after she destroys the Games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage.
