In the ever epic Kristen Stewart vs. Jennifer Lawrence battle of the kick-ass-girls-with-hot-love-interests, it seems that K-Stew has taken a slight lead.  Not only did she take home the awards for “Best Kiss” and “Movie of the Year” last night at the MTV Movie Awards, but her new film Snow White and the Huntsman officially beat out The Hunger Games during its opening weekend overseas.

SWATH made $39.3 million internationally, just narrowly beating THG which made $38.7 million internationally on its opening weekend in March.  (In case you’re wondering, Twihards, SWATH also beat out the first Twilight by over $9 million).  Pulling in a total of $95.5 million worldwide, SWATH, which stars Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, is officially this week’s number one movie, beating out hard-hitting blockbusters Men in Black 3 and The Avengers

To the ladies out there who dragged their boyfriends to the movie theater this weekend because you absolutely had to see Chris Hemsworth on the big screen, kudos to you.  While 53 percent of movie-goers in North America were female, a close 47 percent were male, greatly benefiting the movie’s opening success.  According to Universal, the film was never targeted directly to females because of its action-packed nature.  So, if your boyfriend was secretly embarrassed that he may or may not have enjoyed the film more than expected, tell him not to worry — it’s not a chick flick.

    THG would be so much better if they sticked with the book, but NOOO, they had to do it very diffrently. Belive it or not: If Kristen wasn’t in SWATH, then it would’ve been a total flop. No seriously, THG book is better then the movie (to be honest), but I’m actually ok with it :P.
    Nooo, I don’t like Jen that much. I like Alexander :D

    stewart is not such a bad actress, what is annoying is her character in twilight, i mean come on, Bella Swan has been whining through all the saga , the best that character has done in the movie is the way she bet her body halfway through when she was giving birth, you gatta admit that was way to weird and on a way awsome, but i liked her in one movie called Speak.
    And the hunger games was cool but it could have been better, didn’t anyone notice Peeta didn’t get his leg amputated :/ , i thought that was vital in the books, specially for catching fire.

      Def The Hunger Games was not what i’ve expected, the book is so much better than the movie… And, yes Bella Swan role is just awfull, but make money all the way, even in another movie like SWATH. i really, really hope that KStew show her talent in others characters going forward!

    SWATH is good but it never could make all this succes without the name of Kristen Stewart on the posters. She’s def not better then Jenn. NO WAY. She just had so much lucky in her life for to be choosed to play Bella. And, in fact, IT’S NOT KRISTEN FANS, IT’S TWILIGHT FANS THAT WILL WATCH EVERY SH*T THAT HAVE THE NAME OF THE GIRL THAT LIVES BELLA SWAN IN! #uglytruth

    I never liked kristen stewart…until this movie which was suprisingly good, but i still think that the hunger games was a better movie. SWATH only beat the hunger games because everyone knows who kristen stewart is and know one knew who jenifer lawrence was before the hunger games. As far as acting goes, jen is , honestly, a much better acter than kristen.

    I think that is because kristen stewart. If she is in a movie then all of the twilight fans come with her. As for jenifer and the hunger games cast they have been in a lot of movies but this is there first Huge movie. BUT I STILL LOVE HUNGER GAMES AND HARRY POTTER MORE THAN I WILL EVER LIKE TWILIGHT!
