So Catching Fire the second movie in the Hunger Games franchise raked in a whopping $161 million dollars this weekend. WOW!!!
I am trilled that a book series turned movie franchise generates this kind of fan base. So I am even more thrilled when students are emailing me over the weekend and telling me
“Dear Mrs. S
You have to see Catching Fire! It was wonderful. Please see it this weekend so we can talk about it on Monday.”
This was the best movie ever! So much better than Hunger Games.”
“Hi Ms. S
Catching fire was great. And I still think Peeta is cuter.”
These are just some of the emails I received over the weekend. And even if some of the people who are seeing the movies have never read the book, I’m ok with that…because 9 out of 10 have and that makes me smile.
So to answer the emails…
I will be seeing the movie, just before Thanksgiving. I am waiting until Friday.
I hope it is as good as the first movie because they did a great job with that.
Both Gale and Peeta are cute…but Gale is a tad cuter. Just my opinion.
