Titbit: Secret to “The Hunger Games” Success

katniss2The Hunger Games has already zoomed past the movie theatre take for any of the Twilight movie releases and is heading towards knocking off Batman Returns in the number two slot.

Why is it so?

Well according to an article in today’s West Australian one of the big contributing factors that the Hunger Games has going for it, that Twilight did not, is that males are also into it.

Whereas Twilight was very much ‘for girls only’ the Hunger Games—a bit like the Harry Potter series, only more so—has strong appeal for males, and just not teen males; young adult and mature males are buying the book and going to the movies to see it.
