Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen
According to an article on Bloomberg.com, ‘The Hunger Games’ could be a game changer for Lionsgate. The $80 million movie which will be released on March 23, 2012 is Lionsgate’s biggest production to date.
“The Hunger Games” and three potential follow-ups could generate from $220 million to as much as $733 million in earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization during the next several years, according to forecasts by James Marsh, an equity analyst at Piper Jaffray & Co. inNew York, who rated the stock a “buy” as of mid-October.
The high-end forecast would amount to three-quarters of the studio’s market capitalization of $975 million as of Oct.10. “The Hunger Games could be the biggest catalyst for Lions Gate’s profits and share price during the next decade,” Marsh says. “It could be a game changer for them.”

You read it and you can just kind of see everything. … [R]ight before I went in to read with the director, I read the first book and I loved it. I didn’t realize how good the writing was. And then I went in and read with [director] Gary Ross, and that was it.
When you were reading it, was there a certain part you identified with?
Oh yeah, it was always for Gale. It was always for Gale. I read the script, and Gale definitely felt more right than Peeta.
Did they film all three of these in one, or did you just film one?
No, originally I think they talked about maybe shooting them back-to-back, but no, we shot the first one and it was all shot in North Carolina.
And how was that? I know a lot of it was in the woods. Continue reading “Liam Hemsworth Talks About Playing Gale Hawthorne In The Hunger Games with Vanity Fair” »
