The Hunger Games films are based off a trilogy of adventure novels of the same name. The first film premiered in 2012, two years after the trilogy ended, while the final installment was split into two parts released in 2014 and 2015 respectively. Each film opened at number one upon their releases, with the series becoming one of the highest grossing film franchises of all time and rivaling other fantasy film adaptions Harry Potter and Twilight.
