The ‘Hunger Games‘ movie has become one of the most anticipated movies of the year and so because of the massive amount of tracking, this Lionsgate film is believed to possibly pull in $100 million it its domestic debut.
It has been observed that the initial tracking for the film adaption of Suzanne Collins‘ novel The Hunger Games is so strong that box office observers as well as exhibitors believe that this movie will reach that amount, if not at least matching the $70 million that ‘Twilight‘ pulled in with its debut.
Speaking of ‘Twilight’, the prerelease interest of ‘Hunger Games’ with all of its headlining stars such as Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth is attracting the same attention that the Twilight frachise had. However, the difference here may be that Twilight attracted more females who read the books than males. ‘Hunger Games’ could possibly have an advantage to appeal to more males than Twilight did. Although this is true, the strongest quadrant for ‘Hunger Games’ is still females younger than 25, according to tracking, which is then followed by older women. younger males and older males.
“There’s no doubt about it, more males will show up for Hunger Games,” one rival studio executive said.
I can definitely understand why the Hunger Games would attract more males than Twilight did. Anyways, I’m really excited to see this and I hope it really does do well after all the hype.
