First an award-winning and blockbuster movie star, next thing for Jennifer Lawrence is a song up at the UK charts.
Gigwise reported that Lawrence’s “The Hanging Tree” is now number 17 in the chart and number 7 in the UK iTunes.
The report quoted the director as saying that Jennifer Lawrence: “was horrified to sing, she cried a little bit in the morning she had to sing.” “But she did it and she did it all day – and she hated me for making her do it all day – but she did and it’s great.
She’ll probably never really understand it because she’s so sensitive about the singing,” Francis Lawrence stated.
Reports say that the actress singing wasn’t all that bad, it was actually good, making her one of the most talented artist in Hollywood.
Last week, although it did not make over $150 million, ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 still made history by being the film which has the biggest opening in 2014 to date, Deadline reported.
The movie might have disappointed expectations by analysts as far as earnings on its weekend debut but still it toppled ‘Transformer: Age of Extinction ‘ from its spot as holding the record of the top weekend opening of the year.
Hunger Games: Catching Fire last year opened at $158 million, but Mockingjay also made $152 million outside of the United States.
In the New York Daily News article David Spitz, head of distribution for Lionsgate, producer of the franchise said that the weekend earnings proved the popularity of the Hunger Games.
“It’s the biggest opening of the year, so it really illustrates the strength of the franchise,” he said.
Although Lionsgates stocks dipped, Spitz is still confident in the upcoming second part of Mockingjay.
Let’s watch out as the song rockets in the charts and the movie continues to bring in money.
