DAVID GREEENE, HOST:
And today's last word in business is an appetite for "The Hunger Games." Apparently a lot of people spent part of their weekend at the movie theater watching Katniss Everdeen run through the woods. The adventure film collected $155 million at box offices this weekend. That's the most ever for a film that is not a sequel.
Speaking of sequels, "Hunger Games" producers must be liking their odds in the future. They already have a sequel in the works. It is scheduled to start filming this fall.
That wraps up the business news here on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm David Greene. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
