Scoring the best single day total for a non-sequel on Friday ($68.5 million), The Hunger Games is expected to equal that record for the weekend with a total haul of somewhere north of $150 million. This would also be the highest March opening ever. All signs point to The Hunger Games phenomena being bigger than The Twilight Saga, perhaps even bigger than Harry Potter.

On BBC Radio Wales’ Roy Noble show this week, “Doctor Who” reboot honcho and “Torchwood” creator Russell T Davies had this to say about his upcoming kid’s show:
Coming up now we’ve got a children’s drama that we’re making out these new Roath Lock Studios called Wizards vs. Aliens. it was called Aliens vs. Wizards until a lawyer stepped in, but there we go. By Easter it will probably be called Chickens vs. Rabbits or something… It’s a great big, fun series for Children’s BBC that will be out in the Autumn.
