"The Hunger Games" has worked out very well for Lionsgate Vice Chairman Michael Burns. Burns made more than $28 million in fiscal year 2013, according to an SEC filing Monday.

That figure is roughly five time what Burns made last year, a rise due to almost $14 million in stock option awards, almost $8 million in stock awards, a bonus of $4 million, a salary of almost $1 million and a few other incentives.

Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer also got a significant bump, banking $12.6 million – a 95 percent raise.

Lionsgate's stock rose more than 70 percent in that time and has continued to surge thanks to the success of the "Hunger Games," "Expendables" and ‘Twilight" franchises.
