‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Set to Shoot in Atlanta

Catching Fire Filming in Atlanta
Lionsgate

No one expected 'The Hunger Games' to do as well as it did. Sure, everyone was expecting a big hit, but no one was expecting the major blockbuster numbers the film pulled off when it was released back in March. Naturally, Lionsgate did the fiscally (if not creatively) responsible thing: they put a sequel on the front burner and turned up the heat. Today, it was revealed that 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' is set to begin filming in Atlanta this July.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Men in Black 3′ Takes a Dive

MIB3 Box Office
Columbia

It took four weeks for another film to dethrone 'The Avengers' from the top of the box office, but that dethroning occurred with a whimper, not a battle cry. 'Men in Black 3' arrived on the scene and proved that advance hype and high tracking are abstract concepts that don't always reflect reality. $55 million isn't an opening that'll have executives committing seppuku, but for a film that was expected to open to north of $80 million, it's a definitely a solid kick in the groin (metaphorically speaking, of course).

Weekend Box Office Report: Everyone in the World is Seeing ‘The Avengers’ Before You

Avengers International Box Office
Marvel

Normally, the Weekend Box Office Report tends to shy away from covering the international box office. However, we're making an exception this week, mainly because the domestic box office was hopelessly anemic and 'The Avengers' opened everywhere not called the United States and took in an absolutely absurd amount of cash. Between 39 territories, Marvel's hotly anticipated Superhero Team-Up Extravaganza earned an astonishing $178.4 million, shattering opening records across the globe.
