Well, looks like Lionsgate has another massive win on it’s hand with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. From the movie studio that brought you Abduction and the Saw series, comes the biggest November opening of all time. Catching Fire has brought in $161.1 million! Thats the kind of numbers that converts New Line from Freddy to Lord of the Rings. Kudos to Lionsgate for cashing in on the Tween Sensation!
|1.||Marvel’s The Avengers||$207.4|
|2.||Iron Man 3||$174.1|
|3.||Harry Potter Deathly Hallows 2||$169.1|
|5.||The Dark Knight Rises||$160.8|
|6.||The Dark Knight||$158.4|
|7.||The Hunger Games||$152.5|
|9.||Twilight Saga: New Moon||$142.8|
|10.||Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn 2||$141|
As you can see by looking at the All-Time Biggest Openings in Box Office History, Catching Fire is in the #4 position! Given the film had a better plot, and MUCH better CGI than the first film, it’s no doubt it was such a hit. Next week, there isn’t really any competition in way of Jennifer Lawrence and company either. Now it’s just a matter of how fast the film can reach a Billion!
