'Hunger Games': $19.7 million at midnight shows

The odds are ever in favor of Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games” making a Cornucopia full of money over the weekend.

As reported in Entertainment Weekly and the Los Angeles Times, the new movie raked in an astonishing $19.7 million from midnight showings across the country -- the seventh highest total gross from such first-night screenings, behind only “Harry Potter” and “Twilight” sequels.

“Hunger Games” fever is burning so hotly that Hollywood is anticipating the movie could make $100 million this weekend, and perhaps flirt with the top-five biggest openers ever. To crack that elite list, it would need to do better than last fall’s “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” which opened to $138.1 million.

How much do you think “The Hunger Games” will earn at the box office this weekend?

Any story portraying children being victimized will not get even $1.00 of my money.

It's a damn movie set in a post apocalyptic world people. It is fiction...not reality. Get off of your high horse.

While children are clearly victims in this story, the story is really about how BIG government destroys people's lifes, putting one group down for the benefit of another.

It ultimately leads into the next book which shows how a little hope can grow and allow for the oppressed to rise and triumph over the evils of BIG government. Anytime a government grows too big, it becomes oppressive.
