"I love this film madly and i agree that this is the best musical scene of the movie.More than a queer film it is a story about the internal travel in life of a person --the kind of stories that thrills me most."-César

Article Excerpt:

The Year in Review continues withMichael Cusumanoon Jennifer Lawrence's box office coronation,a more impressive achievement than you think.

At the sound of the closing bell,Iron Man 3clings to the title of top grossing domestic release of 2013,but Tony Stark should savor the honor while it lasts.He is all but certain to relinquish the crown to Katniss Everdeen in the early weeks of 2014.

If one wants proof that this is all but a done deal,one need only compare the grosses of the first Hunger Games to its sequel.According toBox Office Mojo,Catching Fire's398 million is 24 million ahead of its predecessor at the same point in its release (41 days).Since the firstHunger Games' final gross of 408 million is nearly tied withIron Man 3's 409 million,unless the grosses ofCatching Fireunexpectedly crater it's a safe bet that when we close the book on the 2013 the second entry in theHunger Gamesseries will hold true to its protagonist and emerge from the arena the final victor.

That a film with a strong,capable female protagonist as its sole lead is the year's number one film is reason to cheer.That I was unable to recall the last film to duplicate this feat emphasizes the rarity of the achievement.It made me curious:

When was the last time a film led solely by a female character topped the domestic box office in its year?[The answer is after the jump]
