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:
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
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!
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!
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?
Working with the fantastic people at Fandango and Movies.com, we are thrilled to present our latest quiz, which uses a complex formula to figure out what district you truly belong in. Do you belong in District 4 with Finnick or District 12 with Katniss, or maybe you’re even a citizen of the Capitol?

Thanks to the incredible people at Ranker.com, we have access to a very cool Hunger Games list! As you can see below, Katniss leads the pack (no surprise), but Haymitch is in second?? We thought for sure that would be Peeta.
