If you were one of the people who saw Hunger Games this weekend, it will probably not surprise you that the movie had a record-breaking box office ticket sales in the whopping amount of $155 million for a non-sequel film.
I literally watched the movie with 11 other friends, taking on a whole row of seats in the theater this weekend.
My take? You should go see it.
I started to read the book and I was on page 101 of the first installment but I had to just see it. I will continue to read the book (since I have nothing better to do than go to class and go to work anyway) before the next one comes out.
A friend of mine told me that it disturbed him. Without giving too much detail, he had concerns about how teens will perceive the competition and how it will affect them. I somehow didn’t share that view with him but, to each his own.
