The Hunger Games: Third Biggest Opening Box Office Weekend Ever!

So the much hyped, The Hunger Games, managed to destroy the box office this weekend as it made about $155 million, making it the third largest opening for a movie, behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($169.2 million) and The Dark Knight ($158.4 million). There is no doubt that Lions Gate is happy, as not only did The Hunger Games make a lot of money, it is already the Lions Gate's highest grossing movie (surpassing Fahrenheit 9/11's $119.1 in three days).

The Hunger Games is also the biggest opening for a non-sequel, which, when the sequel to this movie comes out, will possibly break even more records. Worldwide, The Hunger Games has grossed $214 million.
