…… it seems like we could be getting ready to greet the year’s first big blockbuster movie. Reports are in that The Hunger Games has ALREADY broken records for pr-release tickets and sales for the first midnight screenings last night. The estimates are that the movie is looking to bring in $130 – $150 million in it’s first weekend in the US alone! The worldwide total, including release in the UK this weekend, should push the figure well North of $200 million in just three days. The folks behind John Carter will definitely be taking notes, I think. It’s probably a very safe bet that the sequel to The Hunger Games (I talk about it HERE) was green lit and put on the schedules on the basis of Thursday night’s figures alone.
If you’re looking for something a little different though, or if you have room in your weekend for a double header, check out my Tip of the Week, the excellent Wild Bill. It would be a shame if it got overlooked altogether.
Check back over the weekend to see just how things are shaping up. If you see any films over the weekend let us know which ones in the comments and what you thought. Don’t be shy!
