“Hunger Games” Earns $155 Million, Shatters Box Office Records

We all knew The Hunger Games would be big, but I do not think anyone could have predicted just how successful it would become.

In only three days (and some midnight showings), early estimates from Lionsgate report that The Hunger Games has earned an amazing $155 million domestically. The film, which is an adaptation of the bestselling novel by Suzanne Collins, now has the third-highest opening weekend ever, behind Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 and The Dark Knight. Additionally, it’s also the highest opening of all time for a non-sequel movie and the highest gross for a film whose opening weekend is outside of the summer season.

It should be noted that this figure is an estimate, so things could change, but if they do it will most likely only be to make it a bigger number.

We have yet to run any review or feature on The Hunger Games, mostly due to the fact our staff is a little divided on how it made us feel. Did you see The Hunger Games this weekend? Comment below and tell us what you thought of this (massive) motion picture.
