The Hunger Games Fandom Makes List of Most Devoted Fan Bases

Vulture  recently compiled a list and ranked the top 25 most devoted fan bases and The Hunger Games Fandom makes an impressive appearance at the number 7 spot!

Hunger Games
POPULARITY: Suzanne Colllins’s book trilogy is Amazon’s best-selling series of all time, while the 2012 film counterpart had the fifth-biggest opening weekend in history ($152.5 million domestic) and became the thirteenth-biggest-grossing domestic movie of all time ($408 million). Has inspired countless tie-ins (a cookbook, a sports club workout, a $999 Mockingjay pin).

FACEBOOK FOLLOWERS: 7.8 million

TWITTER FOLLOWERS: 657,000

FAN NICKNAME: Tributes

MAIN HANGOUTS: Mockingjay.net, Hunger Games Tumblrs

AVERAGE DEMOGRAPHIC: Female, teen, or teen at heart. Thanks to better writing and kid-on-kid violence, the franchise attracts a wider following than its vampire counterpart, Twilight, but the core audience is still young women.

DEVOTIONAL PROFILE: Mere hours after Jennifer Lawrence was cast as the big-screen Katniss in 2011, the forums were rumbling: She’s not skinny enough! She’s too fair-skinned! Her hair is (gasp) blonde! The immediate outrage over Lawrence — a 20-year-old Oscar nominee and an obviously talented actress — was about fidelity; Collins’s books enthralled young readers (and the elders who read along with them) because of their precise, horrifying detail. So cue the ever-vigilant Hunger Games fan Tumblr, which monitors casting notices and opines daily about which actors meet the exacting specifications of the source material for the upcoming sequels. They post set photos and analyze costume and makeup decisions. They speculate endlessly about which minor characters will or will not make it into the movie.

And though it is young adults (read: teen girls) who participate most enthusiastically in this online behavior, the Hunger Games phenomenon has overtaken their elders, too. It is hard to find a parent without an opinion on the franchise’s violence or a twentysomething female without an opinion on Gale versus Peeta. Most crucially, it is near-impossible to meet anyone who has not seen the movie: The widespread book-to-movie obsession resulted in an astounding opening and toppled all previous Twilight records. Should there be any doubt about continued interest, just consult the fan sites, where a never-ending war rages on about the physical embodiment of Finnick Odair and whether Sam Claflin is fit to play him. (Spoiler alert: He is probably not. But a record number of moviegoers will buy tickets to find out.)

Jennifer Lawrence is the new face of Dior

Beginning spring/summer 2013 the incomparable Jennifer Lawrence will be the new face of Dior’s bag campaign, see details below!

Dior has a brand new muse and she just happens to be one of our favorite young actresses: Jennifer Lawrence.

So what exactly does being the face of the fashion house mean for Lawrence? She’ll front the spring/summer 2013 Miss Dior bag campaign (Mila Kunis and Marion Cotillard have starred in previous seasons’ ads), which you will spot in magazines starting next March.

“It’s such a dream to represent an iconic brand that is synonymous with high fashion,” the actress said in a statement. “I’m so excited to be working with the fashion house and wear the new creations by Raf Simons.” (Simons was named the creative director of Dior in April, after serving as the designer behind Jil Sander.)
Not only will you see Lawrence in Dior in the pages of magazines, but you can also expect to see the Hunger Games star wearing quite a bit of Dior on the red carpet this awards season. Not that donning Dior dresses will be such a change of pace for the actress; recently (perhaps in anticipation of the announcement?), she’s been selecting the label for a number of appearances.

Just last month, she wore a gothic-glam tie-dye couture dress from Simons’s debut collection. And previously she slipped into two ready-to-wear dresses by the designer including a tiered navy mini at the Toronto Film Festival in August, and a floral orange number at the label’s couture show in Paris this summer.
