Catching Fire Surpasses The Hunger Games’ Global Box Office Take with $730 Million

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has earned nearly $730 million worldwide in the few weeks since it has been releases, putting it past the first film in the franchise, which made a respectable $691 million.  Catching Fire came in fourth at this weekend’s box office, earning an additional $13 million domestically.

This weekends’s top 5 are:

  1. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
  2. Frozen
  3. Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas
  4. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
  5. Thor: The Dark World

It’s also worth mentioning that Jennifer Lawrence’s other film in theaters, American Hustle, (which she has earned a Golden Globe Nomination) came in 15th place earning $690, 000.  While that number on it’s own doesn’t sound exceptionally noteworthy, it does once you realize it is in limited release and is showing at six, yes just SIX, locations!  Very impressive indeed!

When they expressed their pain over not filming with each other as much in the third movie:

Fantastic video from Tennessee: Interview with Francis Lawrence

Hunter Phillips, who was an extra on the first film (he stood two spots behind Peeta during the Reaping scene) has put together a phenomenal video from the special screening in Tennessee on behalf of the Hunger Games Fireside Chat Podcast.

Most notably, go about four minutes in and watch the wonderful interview with Francis Lawrence. What a NICE GUY!

Great job, Hunter!

How much does Katniss’s house in Victor’s Village cost?

It’s a fascinating question for those who love hearing property values and such things. Keep in mind, Victor’s Village mansions are NOT for sale, as the only way to live in one is through winning a Hunger Games (a price far too steep for anyone other than a Career, we would think!). Still, what would a house like this go for on an open market?

The folks at movoto.com did a pretty complex analysis to figure this out. See this graphic which explains the total:

So there you have it! Just a mere $1,837,080. Who’s got that lying around?
