"Our little $34 million-budgeted film is pretty darn strong," said Chris Aronson, head of distribution for Fox. "No-one had launched a young adult title in September. We took a risk, but it paid off," he added BBC reports.

"It shows the pitch-perfect strategic planning of Fox," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak. "Teenagers are probably the most fickle creatures on the planet to figure out. So marketing to this particular group is tricky and there have been a lot of casualties in this young adult war," Paul Dergarabedian added.
