These 7 Sequels Will Dominate the Box Office in 2014 - The Motley Fool

By Steve Symington

Thanks to massive late-year pushes from sequels including Lionsgate's (NYSE: LGF  )The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Time Warner's (NYSE: TWX  The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, domestic movie-goers have spent more than $10.7 billion at the box office so far in 2013. 

That's nearly a full percentage point ahead of the $10.61 billion at this point in 2012, which means 2013 could very well exceed last year's fresh $10.8 billion high mark. 

But several other big-budget sequels played a large part in running up the score this year, including the likes of Disney (NYSE: DIS  ) Marvel's Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World,Disney Pixar's Monster's University, and both Despicable Me 2 and Fast & Furious 6 from Comcast Universal.

By KJ DELL'ANTONIA


Earlier this month, I asked readers to share stories of charities that had touched and inspired their families and sparked an urge to give in their children. As we head through what’s often a week of charitable giving for many and into 2014, we’ll post some of those stories here.

Angel’s Cradle

by Anne F. Cunningham

I am an American living in Tirana, Albania. I am writing about an American 501(c)(3) charity that has carved out a tiny but incandescent presence in this small, impoverished, easy-to-overlook country, and has involved our entire family in surprising ways.

Our family is posted to Tirana, where my husband is the United States ambassador.

Do you know who the High Princess is of the My Little Pony World?

Imagine The White Rabbit jumping through the Magic Hole and becoming Alice in Wonderland... at High School! Instead of the watch and the I'm Late White Hare, Alice is after her crown stolen by the Queen of Hearts' bullying daughter. So in My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Land, the unicorn Princess, Celestia, has seen the AmAzInG magical powers of the Purple Pony, Twilight Sparkle! And she has made her a Princess! with a beautiful Golden Crown to wear!



With all her new titles and gear, Twilight Sparkle is a bit overwhelmed, somewhat embarrassed. So she hides her crown, as does not feel worthy to wear it.  That night, the adorable, but jealous Sunset Shimmer, stealthily sneaks into Twilight Sparkle's room and grabs the crown! As she flees with the golden treasure, Twilight Sparkle awakens and gives chase....  Read More
