  • How: The movie The Hunger Games was very popular. The teaser trailer for Catching Fire already has over 15,000,000 views. (19,684,276) I am a big fan of The Hunger Games, and have been waiting for this to come out since I heard about it before The Hunger Games came out last year. The movie comes out on November 22 at midnight. This affects other Hunger Games fans and me because after school on November 22, I'm sure I will be going to see the movie! This also affects us because our local movie theaters will be packed with many people that day. It could help Liongates stocks because its popular and they will make money off of it. As my mom says, it's mindless entertainment that takes our minds off of what is going on in the world. Not that it's that different.
