Well, there wasn't much to this week's box office, except for a win for Frozen in taking the top slot as it didn't fall quite as hard as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire did. But things are going to pick up next week with the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, so there's that.

There is one movie opening this weekend. That's Inside Llewyn Davis, which will be on four whole screens. And those screens will be in New York and Los Angeles, so there's not going to be much to observe this week except huge drops after a holiday weekend. It will be like when gravity is restored in a movie. Sharp plummets.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)
As our own Damon Houx noted on Thursday, film adaptations of Young Adult novels are a tricky thing.  For every Young Adult franchise that manages to have just the right combination of stars, storyline, and direction (Twilight, inexplicably), there are a handful of clunkers that simply can’t catch the zeitgeist (The Mortal Instruments, The Host).  The...

Opening a week before Thanksgiving, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire might clear $300 Million in ten days. That's the hope anyway, it's going to be a biggun regardless. The record for a three day opening is currently held by The Avengers, which made over $200 Million, and had the benefit of 3D and Imax (whereas this just has Imax). But that's...

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)
There are a number of young adult novels that have tried their hardest to grab that cinematic spark that The Hunger Games has successfully captured, but very few are able to do so. Those bad ones? They're made to look like wedding videos in comparison to the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, a worthwhile sequel that contains more...

Throughout the ratio of young adult novels that successfully transitioned from page to screen is slim, and for every Harry Potter, there's three The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. They have to present more than just a pretty young face and give us enough substance and depth for general audiences to latch onto. Suzanne Collins created an...

This weekend brings The Hunger Games: Catching Fire to the big screen, and it stars a number of Oscar winners and nominees. And yet its Oscar prospects are virtually nil. Is this a reflection of the considered old Academy voting block? More than likely.

In what could be the oddest news to pop out this Friday, there's reports that Lionsgate is mulling over the possibility of making a theme park out of the popular movie and book franchise The Hunger GamesStrange, right? While it's not finalized, the mere thought of this theme park doesn't make me feel too well for a number of reasons.

As we slog ever closer to the November 22 release date of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Lionsgate would be remiss not to hurl one trailer after another to a fanbase that’s already primed and ready to see the film over and over and over again, anyway.  And so, of course, we begin our week with news of a new (and final) The Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer.

But 2013 isn't over, and you'll be surprised to know...
