1. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 1 (Lionsgate, 4,151 Theaters, 113 Minutes, Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some disturbing images and thematic material): There’s very little to say about this film. The previous installments have been a hit, this one should be too. Don’t believe me? Just look. It has the weekend to itself. If you have seen the others, you’ll be going to see this one. If not, nothing I can say will convince you.
But since I have column space to fill, it looks like this will be the one where a full fledged rebellion breaks out, with Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) as one of its leaders.
The final book was broken into two films, which is so popular these days, and we’ll have to wait until next November for the finale.
