When we last checked Saturday night, 24 March 2012, we assumed that the film ‘The Hunger Games’ would be in between $130 to $150 million. But according to an article written by Ethan Sacks of the New York Daily News, “The film earned a record-shattering $155 million at the box office in its debut weekend.”
This result would ultimately make ‘The Hunger Games’ the number one highest earning movie that is a non-sequel. It would than be considered third-highest total in history.
In first place we have ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2’ which was released only last year and closed out at around $169.2 million. Furthermore, In second place we have 2008’s ‘The Dark Knight’ that brought in $158.4 millio
It was no more than solid marketing/advertising and a very well written book that brought in this volume of an audience. Lionsgate films was extremely happy with the result and the fact that it’s the first time in history a movie that is not a sequel draws these numbers.
