Re: I'd Pay to See Kathryn Bigelow Direct Wonder Woman - Would You?
I was under the impression that The Host, Beautiful Creatures, and The Golden Compass were all fairly popular young adult books and/or series. That didn't help them at the box office, though.
They are, particularly the last two. The Hunger Games
honestly wasn't even that
huge prior to the movies, I don't think. It was popular, but not a Harry Potter-level thing. Merely having a popular source material isn't a guarantee of anything.
According to Box Office Mojo, The Hunger Games had a budget of $80m.
So? The sequels are going to cost a lot more than that.
