'The Hunger Games' premiere

The Hunger Games (movie)Suzanne Collins
Lionsgate hadn't seen a profit in five years when the studio secured co-production rights to Suzanne Collins' popular novels. The film went on to set multiple box-office records. With three sequels in the works, Katniss Everdeen will be a big screen fixture for a few more years. Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic
