Twilight and the Hunger Games have a rivalry that has pretty much been blown out of proportion by the media. For all intents and purposes, the only similarities between the two stories are that the books are considered YA, and they both feature a central female protagonist.

However, one aspect where the two legitimately can and will be compared is box office. Considering that they are both films that cater to a similar demographic and follow the trend of YA novels being turned in films, studios and production companies look at the box office receipts of both film franchises to test the viability of future films in the same genre. For example, after Twilight became a huge success at the box office, several supernatural romantic films were greenlit, i.e. Beautiful Creatures, Mortal Instruments. However, Beautiful Creatures did very poorly at the box office, and the jury is still out on Mortal Instruments.
 
With the Hunger Games' massive success last year, and sequels still to come, Lionsgate is taking a gamble on Divergent, another YA dystopian adaptation featuring a kick-ass heroine and plenty of action. But right now, the reigning champion still remains Twilight

Even though the first Hunger Games film has managed to outgross every single one of the Harry Potter and Twilight movies in terms of domestic gross, it still has a long way to go before it catches up on international sales. The worldwide box office of all the Twilight movies has crossed over $3 bn dollars, but the Hunger Games is still at $650 million. Now, the Hunger Games will only have four movies as opposed to the five in the Twilight Saga, but even keeping that into consideration, Catching Fire and Mockingjay: Part and 2 would need to do much better internationally than the Hunger Games managed to do. The good news in that regard is that most franchise films usually improve on their predecessors at the international box office, especially as awareness grows - and awareness for the Hunger Games has definitely grown.
 
So what do you think? Will the Hunger Games succeed in topping the Twilight Saga in global box office receipts? Let us know in the comments.
