The movie ‘Hunger Games’ has broken the box office record in the United States by raking in gross profits amounting to $161 million. The sequel known as Catching Fire has wowed audiences worldwide.

Despite being the most popular film of the season, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire narrowly missed the topmost mark which went to Iron Man 3. The latter debuted at $174 million. As for Hunger Games, it is still hot stuff with the heroine, Jennifer Lawrence being quite the in-demand starlet of the show. Especially, in the US, the movie was all the rage. Its closest successful venture was Thor which amassed $14.1 million.

Meanwhile, Vince Vaughn’s Delivery Man took in a feeble $8.2 million. When seen on a historical level, Hunger Games comes fourth alongside other more successful movies such as: The Avengers, Iron Man 3 and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II.

The combination of boy meets girl in an effort to survive the odds shown in the Hunger Games appeals to audiences worldwide. And that means not just the youth but adults too. While it was originally thought that the film would attract teenage girls like the Titanic did, in fact it also was a favorite among their male counterparts. This was due to the violence portrayed in the movie.

In fact, the action-packed film has a much more variegated base than just post-pubescent girls or testosterone-laden lads. Based on Suzanne Collins’ trilogy set in future times, the Hunger Games basically shows players fighting in teams. It is a cruel game of competition that ends in life or death.
