'The Hunger Games' Heads Back to IMAX Theaters for Another Week
While the internet has been abuzz with who will replace director Gary Ross for The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, with Francis Lawrence receiving an official offer to direct the film just yesterday, the box office has still been dominated by the first film in the franchise. For those who haven't been keeping track, the film has actually sat atop the box office for four weeks in a row, and the last two films to do that were a couple indies called The Dark Knight and Avatar. Could the film win again this weekend? If not, it might stand a chance on April 27th when the film returns to 100 IMAX screens for another one-week run.
Here's The Hunger Games trailer again, and see a new poster for the IMAX re-release at Collider:

Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss, a 16-year-old living in the post-apocalyptic country of Panem. Every year, one boy and one girl are chosen from each of Panem's 12 districts to fight each other to their death.
The Hunger Games is both written and directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Gary Ross, director of Seabiscuit and Pleasantville previously, but also writer of Big, Mr. Baseball, Dave, Lassie, Pleasantville and Seabiscuit. It's adapted from Suzanne Collins' popular series of novels, first published in 2008. Lionsgate brought The Hunger Games to theaters everywhere starting March 23rd, 2012 this spring. Going again?

I really Wana good director for sequel, not any unfamous director Doesn't any difference between cuaron and Lawrence technically(also cuaron for me is respectful and perfect power) Catching Fire must beat Hunger Games until the series become eternal.

It was actually alright. There were definitely some parallels with American Idol.

OMG get over this film ppl, it had no character development for any other characters besides Katniss and Peter, way too long, costumes and make up were ridiculously over the top. Best thing about the film was the cinematography and directing.
