Easter Bunny Brings Fortune to Hunger Games

Easter Bunny Brings Fortune to Hunger Games

Twilight eat your heart out: Lionsgate’s Hunger Games topped the Easter weekend raking in $33.5million at the US box office. This takes the film past the $300million mark in a mere 17 days – the fastest for any non-summer or non-holiday movie in history. Not a bad bounce-back for Producer Nina Jacobson who, only 6 years ago, was fired from Disney.

Jacobson and Lionsgate made it clear upon the initial announcement that The Hunger Games book was to be made into a film they would not be adapting the following two books in the series unless this first movie was a success….guess that means we can expect number two, Catching Fire, to be churned out pretty soon. Infact, rumour has it we can expect our screens to catch fire as soon as November next year.

Coming up second in the weekend American box office was American Pie: Reunion taking $21.5million, while James Cameron added a little more to his already rather substantial kitty banking a cool $17.4million with Titanic 3D coming in third.
