As the English movie entertainment space gets more spirited; HBO has created a new benchmark by immediately getting the broadcast rights for the most talked about and critically acclaimed movie off recent - THE HUNGER GAMES, the first of a planned four-film series by Lions Gate Entertainment Corp.
THE HUNGER GAMES, still in theaters across the world, has already posted the third-best opening in US history, breaking the worldwide box office records with $214 million haul in the opening weekend including $ 155 million in US alone, setting a new record for a non-sequel opening. The movie is expected to air soon in India exclusively on HBO, the channel that has a strong reputation of bringing the biggest and the latest Hollywood premieres year on year to Indian audience.
THE HUNGER GAMES is an American dystopian science fiction action-drama film directed by Gary Ross and based on the novel of the same name by Suzanne Collins. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence as a teen forced to compete in a televised death match against other youths in a future North American society where a privileged capital city oppresses the people of 12 outlying worker districts. Its sequel CATCHING FIRE is soon expected to get into production.
