‘The Hunger Games’ Already Breaking Records

‘The Hunger Games’ is not in theaters until Friday, but Lionsgate’s latest theatrical release is already breaking records. Pre-sales of tickets for ‘The Hunger Games’ have topped $80 million. Over 2,000 shows (of 4,000 screens) are sold out across the country. That means you might not get to see Lenny Kravitz flex his bare chest in theaters on Friday unless you already have a ticket in hand.

‘The Hunger Games,’ starring Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson and Lenny Kravitz, is based on the best-selling book by Suzanne Collins. In the film, a dystopian society in the not-so-distant future takes today’s reality TV concept a step further by pitting cast members (white and black) in a deadly televised competition.

Unlike the water-tossing, wig-snatching, scripted scenes you see in today’s reality shows, the competitors in ‘The Hunger Games’ must kill or be killed.

    Imgoing to see it

  • waterlily_76

    I haven’t read the boosk, but I am waiting to see this movie….and Lenny.

  • http://Www.yallaintchit.com Man, I just don’t care™

    I just read up on this to see what the hype was about. It’s bascially a modern day story about the Minotaur from Greek Mythology… well, to an extent.

    I don’t know. Not very inventive to me. Plus, sounds like they goin make it a “love” story. I.E. make it lame.

  • Mamacita

    I don’t get the hype over this movie. I might go to see what all the fuss is about. The previews don’t look all that great to me. :shrug:

  • Mamacita

    @Man MOST movies have a love story thrown in there somewhere.

    Only thing I know about this is that Lenny Kravitz is in it :shrugs:

    This movie (preview) never intrigued me. I wouldn’t even click on the Hunger Game “recipes” they were advertising…..and I’m greedy.

    Yeah, but seems like they will focus on it really hard tho. That’s the jist that I’m getting. Which would make it really lame.

    I could be wrong (I’m not wrong).

    I read the first book…Enjoyed it but don’t agree with the hype. I felt it was like The Running Man for the tween/teen set.

    Which is exactly why people are latching onto it. Harry Potter is done, Twilight is almost done; folks need a new young adult series to obsess about.

    When women are getting those guts beat out on the regular, they’d be bound to say and do just about anything to stick around. I’m glad I’m apart of the XY society.

    i popped my toddler’s hand yesterday when she did something bad. so later, she did something else and i hopped up and she was like “pop pop?” and made this motion like popping her hand. i got scared like, damn i hope she don’t do this at the nursery and have them thinking i beat her! so i gave her a pass. i was tripping because i’ve only popped her maybe three times; she’s only 1.
