For those teenage girls in line already for the fourth (of five) “Twilight” movies: the first official “The Hunger Games” trailer came out today.
Will this be a $1 billion trilogy like “Twilight” or will it fail to meet expectations like the “Percy Jackson” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” movies?
My guess: it’s going to be big … but not as huge as “Twilight.” The real question is whether teenage boys will also be standing in line for this one. If they play up the action (it’s a lot like “Lord of the Flies” meets “The Running Man”) and play down the romance (please!), it might have massive appeal for both.
