Mockingjay casting news has resumed! In what came as a surprise to some of us, Lionsgate announced that Prison Break actor Robert Knepper would be taking on the role of Antonius in both Mockingjay films.
Now WHO is Antonius, you might ask? Early on there was a lot of speculation that he was Dr. Aurelius; however The Wrap is reporting that Antonius is actually President Snow’s Minister. We’re still not exactly sure what that means, but if we find out more we’ll let you know!
Today, in celebration of The Hunger Games Official Movie page hitting the 12 million facebook fan milestone, a new trailer was released! Personally, I felt watching this trailer was just as exciting as if it were full of new footage. Watch it and let us know what you think!
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has a firm grip on the box office as it maintains it status as the number one movie in the world for a second week in a row! Box Office Mojo reports early estimates indicate the film made another $74.5 million this weekend domestically, with an additional $92.5 million globally. This brings the domestic total up to $296.5 million and international total at $276.4, making it’s haul so far, in just over a week, a very impressive $573 million. If the estimates hold up, it will mean Catching Fire has already made roughly 82% of The Hunger Games $691 million lifetime gross!
Catching Fire has been breaking a number of box office records as well, including the biggest 5-day Thanksgiving weekend take with $110.1 million.
The top 5 at the box office this weekend are:
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Thor: The Dark World
The Best Man Holiday
Let’s see if Catching Fire can make it three in a row!
