You're the one who brought up the R-rating is needed to attract guys. Who cares about Matrix and 300. Look at Harry Potter, Spider-Man.. {nm}

WSJ: Early market research indicates [HGAME] is likely to exceed the box-office results of the first "Twilight" film   Antibody on Feb 21, 14:33

and of course "early market research" is always right {nm}   PaulBuxton2011 on Feb 21, 14:52

Then again, book buyers doesn't always translate to movie watchers. But I'm optimistic. {nm}   BorderLand on Feb 21, 14:55

I think it's a little early for me to believe this. {nm}   grammar on Feb 21, 15:03

and "unlike twighlight" , it is not fantasy romance novel aimed at teen females, so should we be suprised that it is skewing more Males?   PaulBuxton2011 on Feb 21, 15:04

Well, having just read it after my girlfriend, we are both excited to see it for different reasons...   PRodQuanta on Feb 21, 15:10

Elizabeth Banks isn't naked in it... just FYI. {nm}   TheWeekendWarrior on Feb 21, 18:34

ROFLOL! {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on Feb 21, 19:07

Women (20-55) may be a bigger audience than teen females. I have no data to confirm but FB and 'real' friends plus woman's intuition make it   grammar on Feb 21, 15:18

with a less than R rating, all the cool 'guy'/battle royale stuff is gonna be missing. no blood, raw language, sex, etc... meh. {nm}   adrenalin112 on Feb 21, 15:45

PG-13 franchises make more money than R. {nm}   Antibody on Feb 21, 15:55

i was debating the attraction of 'males' to this flick, not overall BO dollars. theres no mistaking HGAME is a girl flick, this isnt TDK. {nm}   adrenalin112 on Feb 21, 16:04

Attraction equals box office. PG-13 rated films attracted more males than R-rated films. {nm}   Antibody on Feb 21, 16:20

what point are you arguing with me here dmac? just the generalism that pg13 makes more money overall than R?? no kidding.    adrenalin112 on Feb 21, 16:44

HPOT & Spidey are male targeted titles. eh, my fault i'm trying to figure out a way that i could talk myself into looking    adrenalin112 on Feb 21, 17:00

They are 4 Quad movies. Even if they are 60% males, 40% females still translate into more women in attendance than most romcoms. {nm}   Antibody on Feb 21, 17:08

It's okay. At least the BR blu-ray comes out in a month. {nm}   Jelly on Feb 21, 18:12

The Change-Up was also R-rated, and bombed. From what I can remember, most of the audience for that movie was also male.   accountant_4_Jesus on Feb 21, 17:53

machete, piranha, death race all other recent guy R movies that did terrible. What im simply saying is that i dont see HGAME offering   adrenalin112 on Feb 21, 17:59

I might have to reread the series more carefully, I missed the sex! {nm}   stevie1der328 on Feb 21, 16:10

I don't see girls lining up like Twilight for this film...   b4bad on Feb 21, 15:19

That's impressive but not shocking considering the hype. {nm}   thatpj on Feb 21, 15:34

Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson are going on a multi-city meet and greet mall tour   AFRAMFund on Feb 21, 15:54

too bad early tracking is 50 mil {nm}   nero5150 on Feb 21, 16:01

What tracking? If the answer is RS, I wouldn't put to much weight on it. {nm}   BionicMoron on Feb 21, 16:07

no special effects ,wolves,stuff like that,seems like mostly story. {nm}   astorm99 on Feb 21, 18:14

Have you actually read the books? There is FX stuff in it. {nm}   TheWeekendWarrior on Feb 21, 18:49

I believe it and have expected it for some time. Fans of this are absolutely RABID. {nm}   MiyazakiFan on Feb 21, 18:56
