The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is about to break the box office record for the top November opening of a movie OF ALL TIME.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Catching Fire topped the Friday box office with a historic $70.5 million, one of the biggest opening-day grosses of all time in North America and putting the sequel back on course to match the $152.5 million earned by the first film in March 2012
The movie also looks set to do better than the $142.8 million The Twilight Saga: New Moon made on its opening weekend.
It’s a huge hit overseas as well. Catching Fire has already earned $64 million across other countries. The movie is doing double the business of The Hunger Games overall, and is four times larger in Germany and nearly 40 percent bigger in Australia.
Are we surprised? Not at all.
