The Hunger Games Reaches $400 Million Mark at Box Office
Box Office Mojo is reporting that Lionsgate’s newest hit The Hunger Games has surpassed the $400,000,000 millionth mark in North American sales. It currently ranks as the 14th biggest earners in history of the domestic box office. They just reached a little over $400,250.00 this past weekend in the box office, surpassing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. It still has a long way to compete with the likes of Avatar, Toy Story or Marvel’s Avengers. As for what they expected for it this past weekend for the movie reaching past this the $400 million mark, here is what Deadline had to say.
That Lionsgate blockbuster The Hunger Gamescame into this weekend with a domestic theatrical gross of $399.5M. Sometime today, the bestselling book-turned-movie is crossing the $400M mark at the U.S. and Canadian box office. Adding The Avengers and assuming The Dark Knight Rises is a sure thing, this will be the first year where 3 movies end up with over $400 million in North American grosses. Its global cume is near $650M.
I am so happy that it has found success. I really enjoyed the movie and the book, which means I cannot wait until Catching Fire. They are bound to have another hit with it at this rate. Now I do one bone to pick and it has to do with the level of success the stars have had. I am surprised that fans have not gone crazy over them. We know that they did with the stars of Twilight and Harry Potter, so we all assumed that would be the case here. Yet it hasn’t happened yet and while we can say that is good for them, it does make me question what is going on. Everybody assumed they would have that same level of success and fans, which they aren’t having yet. It is bizarre to say at the least.
How do you feel about this news? Is it past-due? I don’t think so. In fact, it seems to be right on track like they hoped. I have no doubt that the sequel will do just as well if not even better. However, we will have to wait and can hopefully see even more success for the first one, once award season kicks off. That would just be the icing on the cake for everyone involved and certainly a great way to cap off this year for them.
