Set to flame past $500m before the week's end, the Hunger Games: Catching Fire is generating enough heat to cook the turkey
• The Hunger Games: Catching Fire – review
Catching Fire does just that
Some $307.7m (£190.6m) estimated worldwide, $161.1m (£99.79m) in North America and $146.6m (£90.8m) internationally from 63 territories. The stats say it all.
Lionsgate's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire demolished the record books and overhauled the $142.8m (£88.45m) 2009 mark set by The Twilight Saga: New Moon, to set a new November opening weekend record and register the fourth biggest domestic launch in history.
$500m will fall within days
With the Thanksgiving holiday a mere three days away, Catching Fire will soar past the half-billion (£309.7m) threshold in North America with ease, given that repeat visits by devout fans tends to drive box office for these kinds of Ya adaptations. Over $300m (£185.8m) in »

‘Catching Fire’ weekend box office: Record breaker with qualifiers — though a huge success all the same (photo: Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) For the weekend of November 22-24, 2013, Lionsgate overestimated the domestic box office take of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire by nearly 2%. Doesn’t sound like much? What about $3 million? That figure can make a hell of a difference when we’re talking box office records. In fact, it can be the difference between a movie breaking and not breaking a box office record. All day Sunday heralded as the biggest 2D opening ever in the United States and Canada, the Francis Lawrence-directed Catching Fire actually opened below two movies: Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises (2012) and The Dark Knight (2008). And when inflation is taken into account, as it always should, the The Hunger Games sequel falls behind a couple of other titles as well. »

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West skipped the craziness of the American Music Awards on Sunday to have a relatively quiet day in NYC. The couple stepped out to catch The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which hit theaters over the weekend, while wearing fur coats. The couple joined millions around the globe to see Jennifer Lawrence's latest, making the movie the biggest November release ever with an opening weekend of over $300 million. The record was previously held by The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Later, Kim changed into a sexy leather jacket and black jeans to accompany Kanye to his show at Madison Square Garden. Sunday night's show marks Kanye's last concert in NYC after spending the past week playing gigs in the Big Apple. Kanye, Kim, and their daughter, North West, will soon head down south to prepare for Kanye's Wednesday show in Nashville. »

Sure, there was no way in Panem that "Catching Fire" would fail to debut at No. 1 and win the weekend by a huge margin. But that didn't mean that a smartly counter-programmed film couldn't do well, too. Before "Catching Fire" set a November record this weekend with an estimated $161.1 million, the record-holder was 2009's "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," with $142.8 million, and yet "The Blind Side" managed to debut with $34.1 million the same weekend. Similarly, on the July 2008 weekend that "The Dark Knight" premiered with $158.4 million, musical "Mamma Mia!" earned $27.7 million.
No one was expecting numbers like that for "Delivery Man," even though it was expected to appeal to an older audience seeking comedy over action and political allegory. Some optimistic pundits guessed that it might open as high as $15 million. »

In a move that surprises no one, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire managed to take the number one spot this past weekend at the box office, with a record breaking haul. Come inside to check out the full box office breakdown, even though it's pretty obvious what everyone went to see.
So pretty much everyone saw The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I mean, no other movie came close to it's box office haul. In fact, on top of setting the November opening weekend record (previously held by Twilight: New Moon) it managed to take the number 4 spot on the all time box office openings list ahead of The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. Thor: The Dark World obviously took a big drop but still took the number 2 spot with this weekend's other new release, Delivery Man, only pulling in the fourth spot:
Title Weekend Total 1. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire »
- firstname.lastname@example.org (Jordan Maison)
Last March, The Hunger Games took the world by storm, topping the global box office to finish up with $691m., breaking records left, right, and centre. So it should really come as no surprise that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire would make a repeat performance over the weekend in its November slot.
The film opened huge at the North American box office over the weekend, with early estimates putting the figures at $161.1m. across the three days, totting up a massive $70.5m. on Friday alone.
It now sits comfortably above The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which previously took $142.8m., to become the highest-grossing November bow in the Us. Not only that, but it also now sits impressively at #4 on the biggest debuts in the Us of all time, inching past The Dark Knight ($158.4m.) and The Dark Knight Rises ($160.8m.), beaten only by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 ($169.1m. »

Might the success of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire unlock more female-headlined blockbuster movies?
If Warner Bros was still umming and ahing over the possibility of a Wonder Woman movie, then the box office numbers this past weekend may well have helped make a decision somewhere along the line. That's because The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opened, and opened to remarkably huge box office numbers.
In the Us, the new film posted a $70.5m opening day, on the way to a $161.1m opening weekend. That smashes the previous record for a November opening in America, which previously sat at $142.8m for Twilight: New Moon.
Furthermore, the film is the fourth biggest opener of all time in the Us, sitting behind The Avengers, Iron Man 3 and Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2. And there are two more cinematic chapters of this story still to be told. »
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire dominated the Us box office over the weekend.
"It's really sad to see her downward decline in personality in general, her awareness of other people's emotions," Hutcherson quipped. "She's become a real Oscar monster!"
As expected, the highly anticipated The Hunger Games: Catching Fire obliterated the box office in its opening weekend, setting a record in the process.
The action-packed sequel, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Elizabeth Banks, speared an estimated $161.1 million domestic over the weekend, nearly tripling the collective total of the remainder of the box office Top 10.

With its colossal opening, Catching Fire also had the largest adjusted-gross November opening and largest adjusted-gross holiday opening in box-office history. The Twilight Saga: New Moon previously held both records.
Finishing a very distant second was the superhero sequel Thor: The Dark World, starring Liam Hemsworth's older brother Chris, which reaped $14.1 million for its third week of release to bring its domestic total up to $167.8 million.
On the heels of Thor once again was the sequel The Best Man Holiday, which collected $12.5 million over the weekend. The reunion »

And The Best Man Holiday nabbed third with $12.5 million. »

Winner Of The Week: Katniss Everdeen. To the surprise of no one in any of the 12 districts, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire debuted on top of the chart; the only suspense was whether it could outdo its 2012 predecessor. The answer was yes; Catching Fire's estimated $161.2 million did beat the $152.5 million debut of The Hunger Games. It also set a couple of records: the best November opening ever (beating the $142.8 million earned by The Twilight Saga: New Moon three years ago) and the biggest ever opening for a movie with »
Exceeding already great expectations as the highly-anticipated sequel to "The Hunger Games" (which opened with $152.5 million), "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" made a jaw-dropping, predecessor-surpassing $161.1 million (already making back its reported $130 million budget domestically) and averaged $38,704 per theater. Update: Lionsgate's early estimates were off, "Catching Fire" grossed $158 million in its opening weekend. This opening weekend marks not only the top opening for star Jennifer Lawrence (beating out her previous bests "The Hunger Games" and "X-Men: First Class" with $55.1 million) and Lionsgate (beating out "The Hunger Games" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" with $141.1 million), but also the top November opening (toppling "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" and its $142.8 million) and 4th 5th largest overall opening of all time ("The Dark Knight Rises" still holds the #4 spot with $160.9 million). Within two installments, the dystopian young »

The girl on fire is still burning bright! Lionsgate’s hotly anticipated sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire trounced the competition over its first weekend at the box office, pulling in an estimated $161.1 million. That gross handily beats the $152.5 million opening of The Hunger Games, which opened in March 2012, and it stands as the best November debut of all time ahead of The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which bowed with $142.9 million in 2009.
Only three films have ever opened higher than Catching Fire: The Avengers ($207.4 million), Iron Man 3 ($174.1 million), and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($169.2 million). Many prognosticators »

The odds were very much in their favor for a huge opening weekend. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire smashed the November opening record, grossing $161.1 million domestically. The Twilight Saga: New Moon previously held the record with $142 million in 2009. This huge debut also makes the action-adventure thriller, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth to name a few, the fourth highest-grossing opening weekend of all time. Marvel's The Avengers holds the all-time record with $207.4 million, followed by Iron Man: 3 with $174.1 million and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 with $169.1 million. Catching Fire broke the Hunger Games previous numbers, which made $152.5 million »
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" did exactly what it was expected to do at the box office this weekend, destroying the record books with a whopping $161.1 million debut according to Film.com.
That's the fourth biggest opening of all time. It also demolished the record for the biggest November opening ever, previously held by "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," which earned $142.1 million back in 2009.
Needless to say, nothing else came close this weekend. But for a full run down of the box office top ten, including figures for Vince Vaughn's disappointing new comedy "Delivery Man," head to Film.com. »

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire surprised no one by setting a new record for a November opening. Earning an estimated $161.1 million from 4,136 locations, the high-profile sequel easily topped the previous record of $142.8 million, set by The Twilight Saga: New Moon in 2009. Perhaps more significantly, Catching Fire also managed to place fourth on the list of all-time domestic debuts, putting it ahead of both The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

The Dark Knight Rises $160.8 6. The Dark Knight $158.4 7. The Hunger Games $152.5 8. Spider-Man 3 $151.1 9. Twilight Saga: New Moon $142.8 10. Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn 2 $141 Analysis and this weekend’s top ten after the jump.

The previous opening weekend record in November was 2009's The Twilight Saga: New Moon with $142.8 million. In fact the first three slots belonged to members of the Twilight family followed by three Harry Potter features. Well, it looks like that's just the right place for what are clearly the three most popular young adult franchises of all-time as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has smashed that New Moon record, bringing in an estimated $161.1 million (includes $12.6 million from IMAX) this weekend accompanied by an "A" CinemaScore and an additional $146.6 million internationally. That opening is enough to become one of the top five openers of all-time. Here's the list: The Avengers (2012) - $207.4 million Iron Man 3 (2013) - $174.1 million Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011) - $169.1 million The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) - $161.1 million (estimated) The Dark Knight Rises (2012) - $160.8 million As you'll note from the numbers, should Catching Fire hold »
