"May the odds be ever in your favor."


"The Hunger Games” thundered to the third best North American debut in history this weekend, with $155 million, charging the box office and launching a franchise that could challenge the “Twilight” series.

I have to say I am not surprised! $150 million and counting! Well above the second place "21 Jump Street" at just over a measly $20+ million. The hype and excitement surrounding "The Hunger Games" BEFORE it's release, was astounding. I myself read all three books, and my anticipation for seeing the movie was palpable! I got my husband and daughter to see it with me (both of which have NOT read the books) and they loved it! Even though I knew what to expect and anticipated the ultimate outcome, I was still thoroughly entertained.

I have no doubt that it will continue it's box office success. I myself may contribute to the running tally after my daughter finishes the first book. It's definitely worth seeing again.
Will "Catching Fire" (rumored to release in 2013) garner the same opening-weekend success? That remains to be seen, but two things are certain: I will see it and Peeta ftw!
