What do Catching Fire and The Exorcist have in common? The answer may surprise you. It's actually pretty upsetting.

Journalist Mark Harris pointed out this remarkable fact.

I mean, really?

Even worse, The Exorcist is debatable. Were Ellen Burstyn or Linda Blair truly even leads?

Not the way Katniss is, for sure. The boys rock, but she's the star.

If you discount The Exorcist, we have to go back to 1968 for Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl.

That's 46 years back for a box office #1 with a lone female star.

Come on, Hollywood. Your public love a female lead.

We have to see more women on screen. Hopefully Katniss can lead the way.
