As The Hunger Games fast approaches, Jennifer Lawrence is trying her best to temper our expectations. It’s not working.
The Hunger Games
The Hunger Games
I don't know if it will be bigger but why are we comparing? These are two TOTALLY different book series. I'm a fan of both and can appreciate that. I think the Hunger Games with start and end strong. They are amazing and well written books. Katniss is a strong female character to look up to.
One audience that I think you are all missing are seniors. I'm well past 65, and THG books were engrossing as a dystopian tale, underlaid with a strong sci-fi vibe concerning how the theatre for the games worked. (Let's hope the theatre is not done with a "Lost"-like approach where stuff just shows up with no explanation.)
I'm looking forward to a good tale well-told. We hope the movie is as faithful to the books as the Swedish version of "The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo" was to those books.
if its gonna be as good as the book its gonna be amazing and this is coming from a junior critic!
Why is Hunger Games and Twilight always in the same sentence. They don't go together at all except they are both by Summit. I think hunger games has more substance but hopefully it is in the right hands. Not just 'lets make a lot of money and have the lowest budget possible' type of a film. It needs to play out for the 17 and older audiance not the 13 year olds. It will have more substance an maturity if they do it that way.
It will recah a bigger adiuens cus this is not a silly lovestory .girls boys men women everyon can realt to it and like it!1
ofc its going to be bigger! and i am not just saying this cus i love the books but i really think they will. its something that everyone can realte to and not just teen girls like twiligth, the story is bretht taking and and actully wery real. and not to mentoin katinss is a grate rolemodel and allso she extermely human. she can make people stronger and she defends the people she loves. not a week crying girl who hides behind her boys!
Whether 'The Hunger Games' box office report is greater than that of either 'Twilight' or 'Harry Potter' depends one thing and one thing only: How the film compares to the book. Both of its 'peer' series tie remarkably well to their shelf-bound counterparts which has allowed the sequels to spawn and for the five- and eight- film series to be as well received and adored as they are. This series is coming at the perfect time to draw audiences of both series, the predominately male non-Twi-hards will be more happy to see this film, and the non-gender-specific audience from Harry Potter will be seeking a new series to fill the void. So, 'The Hunger Games' is going to be big, without a doubt. How big remains to be seen.
The hunger games will be way better. I'm a guy, and (especially for the first book), the romance took the backseat, and a strong action-filled plot drove the main storyline, and I really liked it. As i read, I was afraid that the action was going to slow down, and the romance would pick up too much. But it was very good. I don't know single one of my friends (guys and girls) that don't wanna see it...
Also, The Hunger Games not only had a trailer in front of breaking dawn, but also mission impossible and Super Bowl XLV.
I think it's got a good shot at pulling a audience similar to Harry Potter's.
it will because I know much more people that the hunger games appeals to, the romance as a sub-plot makes it more entertaining for everyone I know, the main factor is that it draws in teenage boys as well
Hunger games the books were so good. The only good thing twilight series had was the wolfs. The action seen with wolfs was great every seen with bella in pretty much was boring and dumb. Hunger games has alot more followers. District 12
Yes, I definitely think it will pull bigger numbers than Twilight. The Games fanbase is still growing and it's growing 4
whoops....accidentally hit comment button...continued:
it's growing 4 ways, male/female/young old, kind of like what Potter had. Anyway, it was great to hear that the ticket sales were so big for this first movie! Im excited!!!
Although a Twilight fan myself, I believe The Hunger Games may gross more due to male following being afded, something the Twilight Saga didn't have much of. Hunger Games appeals to both sexes so it's going to bring in fans that skipped out on Twilight considering it a chick flick. Harry Potter fans looking for a new franchise to follow will probably join the Hunger Games fans. And those who are burnt out on waiting for Twilight movies will probably join the ranks as well. I'm not saying each franchise is going to lose it's followers, I'm just saying Hunger Games has a big chance of grossing more than what those franchises did because out had followers from both plus some that were fans of neither.
It's already beaten Twilight (Breaking Dawn pt. 1) as far as pre-sales go. Which leads the experts to believe that it'll get more $$$ than New Moon and Eclipse which is pretty much a definite seeing as how Twilight sucks anyway while the Hunger Games is better in every way.
its defently going to be bigger it has such a huge audience compared to the Twilight series all the fans are loyal and most of the fans come from Harry Potter
It's going to be bigger because it appeals to a larger audience.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
