The Hunger Games Beat Harry Potter

The Hunger GamesThe Hunger Games was a worldwide best sealing book but now this is not only a book but also movie. The novel did collect well and now the movie is flooding money for the production of the movie. The Hunger Games is a young adult novel written by Suzanne Collins. Now the movie has scored the fifth highest grossing movie opening of all time. This is also the highest grossing opening for any non-sequel movie. The movie has grossed more than $68.3 million worldwide. In the midnight show it collected 19.7 million. The previous non-sequel highest grosser was 2010’s Alice In the wonderland and this movie has grossed $40.8 million. Alice is far behind form the Hunger Games. This Young Adult movie has started off well in the box office. This movie has beak the record of The Dark Knight, Transformers: Revenge of the fallen and the worldwide phenomenon Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part one.

The Hunger Games is little behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part two and the three part of twilight. The Harry Potter and the deathly Hallows Part Two is the highest opening grosser till date and is grossed 91.1 million in the opening.  This is truly an amazing start for any movie. It was predicted that “The Hunger Games” is going to take a mammoth opening. This movie is the highest invested movie of movie production Lions gate. The movie has been hyped as the next big movie franchise. The movie is really good.

The movie is starring by Jennifer Lawrence, who previously acted in the movie X-men First Class and Winter Bone. Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson and Liam Hemsworth were in the movie. The Hunger Games is directed by Gary Ross and produced by Jon Kilik, Nina Jacobson, Robin Bissell and the author of the book Suzanne Collins. The screenplay by Gary Ross and distributed by Lionsgate. This 142 minutes movie has created enough light to audience’s dark way. The budget of the movie is little low and that is $78 million.

The PG-13 film has scored a solid “A” rating from the Audiences. More than 60% audience is women though the Twilight first part gathered more than 80% female audiences. This is for sure the action pack Hunger Games is going to attract men. This movie will definitely do better than twilight first part. As the movie is going the prediction is that the movie is going to cross 140 million in the first week. If not this is going to beat Alice in the Wonderland for sure. Even then movie is the highest grosser for any non-sequel movie. If we compare the first part of Hunger Games we can easily see that the movie has nearly got the amount of the twilight in one day. The Twilight movie has grossed $69 million in one week.

The movie plot is really good. Those who have read the book will also love the movie. The screenplay is awesome. The movie is worth to watch. Every performance is good in the movie. This movie is one of the best movies of the year. Great movie.
The movie deserves 4/5. A must watch.
