News – The Hype and Success of “The Hunger Games”

By Dominic La-Viola

All everyone is talking about is The Hunger Games. All weekend long, all over many social networks, The Hunger Games is what people have been talking about. Now I have seen the film, so I see where all the buzz is coming from. Coming with all the statuses and tweets are the box office records. The Hunger Games have made many box office records this past weekend, although even before the box office success the producers already were talking about a squeal and how they are going to break the three books into four films.

For  Friday, The Hunger Games made a huge $68.3 million dollars, which is the best opening day for a non-sequel film and fifth biggest for an overall opening. The weekend  box office for the film was a world wide total of 214.3 million dollars, which surpasses any of the Twilight films. The Hunger Games is No .1 in almost every foreign market, but the film did best in English-speaking territories. I think the films success is due to the fact that it attracts both male and female demographics, as the film has the love triangle forming which pulls in more of the females and the action part of the story that gets the males interest in the film. A statistic says that 39 percent of viewers were males and 61 percent were female this weekend.
