The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Destroys the Box Office

It's no surprise that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire easily burned down, fueled up, ignited, lit up, and caught fire to the box office this weekend ($161.1 million).  This makes it the 4th biggest debut in history, behind The Avengers ($207.4 million), Iron Man 3 ($174.1 million) and the final Harry Potter film ($169.2 million).  It is also the biggest opening for a November movie, beating out Twilight's New Moon ($142.8 million).  Worldwide, it's total stands at $307.7 million... ahead of the first Hunger Games' $211.8 million debut in March of 2012.

There was another movie that was released this weekend (in case you weren't aware).  And that's Vince Vaughn's Delivery Man. It delivered $8.2 million for a 4th place finish.  It's one of Vince Vaughn's worst debuts in a while.  Though, all is not bad because this film reportedly cost a modest $26 million, so it could easily make some money back.
