The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire raked in a whopping $334 million worldwide on it’s opening weekend at the box office.
It collected US $161.1 million at the US and Canadian box offices alone, but it only narrowly beat out the original movie.
According to the Huffington Post, “the result fell short of some expectations” not beating out Iron Man 3, which opened with $US174 million.
The film starring Jennifer Lawrence as the reluctant heroine Katniss Everdeen opened massively worldwide, taking in $334 million and beating the previous November record, which was held by Twilight Saga: New Moon.
But whatever, it’s amazing and you should definitely go and see it.
Little Miss Sunshine grows up, takes off her clothes. Sigh.
Abigail Breslin isn’t a Little Miss anything anymore.
The 17-year-old has posed topless in photoshoot with controversial photographer Tyler Shields.
One photo features Breslin holding up a sheet to cover her breasts while staring into the camera with dark smoky eye makeup and wait for it, a red lollipop hanging from her mouth. Another photo shows Breslin in a bubble bath.
Of the shoot, Breslin says: “I don’t make these conscious decisions to do it, to like prove to the world that I’m grown up,” Abigail told E! News.
“I think people see my work and see what I do and see that I’m grown up. But yeah, I’m almost 18. I do want to try different things, but it’s all for fun.”
Breslin stars in Shields’ his first feature film Final Girl, which stars the 17-year-old as a young woman targeted for “initiation” by a group of guys.
“I wanted to do something iconic with her, something simple but timeless,” Shields tells E! News. “She’s the perfect subject for something like this. Incredibly talented, beautiful actress but no one has ever seen her like this. There’s fun in that—showing someone to the world for the first time.”
He continues, “Ever since we did Final Girl last year, she has grown up so much while making the movie, I put her through a lot so it was easy to do this. We have a great working relationship and I’m happy to see her all grown up.”
