'The Hunger Games' On Track To Beat 'Breaking Dawn'
Finally, good taste and common sense prevail
I am a mom of 3 and my oldest daughter who is 12 wanted me to read the books. So I did, and I loved them as much as she.
Quick question... on the list of conflicts, why do they put "republicans" on the evil side? Just curious!
Anyway, I have not read any of the books for either series, but I AM interested in seeing The Hunger Games. I hope that it smashes Twilight into the ground and beyond!
I guess that makes briefs, conditioner and The Yankees on the evil side too...
Okay, you do have a point about The Yankees.
And the myth (spun by the media) continues. That Twilight (currently at 2.5 billion and most likely to finish off at over 3 billion at the world wide box office), is fueled "exclusively" by teenage girls. There aren't enough teenage girls on the planet to put up those kinds of numbers. The core audience for this film series is adult women. Why this is dismissed is beyond me. Perhaps because if it's recognized that there's more than just screaming children here, that there might be some...oh I dunno...some significance to it that no one wants to address? It's just a little supernatural fairy tale. Nothing to be afraid of. As for THG...
I'm assuming it will do better than Twilight because with it's violent subject matter, it will have a wider appeal, most especially amoungst the young male demographic which is the most sought after by Hollywood. I wish it well and hope that some of the media spotlight goes in it's direction and off of Pattinson and Stewart. After nearly four years, they've had quite enough. Speaking of, that is one thing that THG will not have going for it, an off screen real life romance between the leads which has kept fan and media interest sky high. What I don't understand is why the media is trying to create a competition between these two stories. Do they do this with Batman and Spiderman? X-Men and Pirates? Or could it be with Twilight and THG (thus far) that the audience is predominately female and the stories revolve around young women? Nothing like a good cat fight huh fellas? Now if they could only find a way to get Bella and Katniss into a couple of bikinis and have them wrestle in the mud.
And even if THG does outgross Twilight, will that automatically write Twilight off as now a failure or that it didn't matter at all? Some in the media would love to write that. They want so badly to write this off as nothing. But they have a problem. This is a story that has marched across nations and cultures to the tune of billions of dollars, they can't figure out why and they don't know how to properly dismiss it so they mock it like bullies on a playground.
I wish THG a great launch and Twilight as great conclusion.
le I am not a fan of Twilight that has nothing to do with my opinion that “The Hunger Games” will become the dominating of the two movies at the Box Office. These are one of the few books that are hard to put down and one that people actually are willing to pick up which is not easy in this media crazy society. The Hunger Games as the article puts it, attracts a wider fan base from kids to adults. This and the fact that it possesses a solid cast made up of newcomer Jenifer Lawrence and well-known stars such as Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson, and Elizabeth Banks. This will not only appeal to those who are reading it but any individual that would like to see an action packed film that has a novelty of what happens when kids are left to fight for the lives.
I read all The Hunger Games novels in less than a week, Blew..me..away.
Can't wait to see how it works on the big screen.
I have not read the twilight books, just saw the movies.
having been an a voracious reader most of my life The Hunger Games is well worth the time to Read.
@janet1964828 - LOL, yup! briefs can be really evil! Can't say so much about conditioner... but definitely briefs and The Yankees.
Anyway, thanks for not taking my earlier post too seriously! :)
Have not yet read the Hunger Games.
I am a HUGE Twilight fan. Loved the books and movies.
I hope Twilight stays on top.
