Not only did The Hunger Games: Catching Fire have the biggest November box office debut, taking $158.1 million in its opening weekend, but the movie also set the record for the highest November IMAX opening ever.
According to the LA Times:
The second installment in the Jennifer Lawrence-starring dystopian action film series made about $12.6 million from Imax theaters in its opening weekend in North America, showing on 347 screens for an average of $36,300 per screen, according to Imax Corp. and Lionsgate. That beats last year’s James Bond film ”Skyfall” for the best November Imax opening ever.
The movie took in an additional $5.4 million from Imax showings in other countries, bringing the worldwide total to $18 million.
