The Hunger Games
‘The Hunger Games’ opened with $155 million at the box office — besting the opening weekends of all four ‘Twilight’ films. This phenomenon can be explained easily — ‘The Hunger Games’ is far superior, on page and screen.

The numbers are in and ‘The Hunger Games’ is a smash! Let the Games begin!
