BOX OFFICE: THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE Closing In On $500 Million Worldwide

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has dominated the North American box office this Thanksgiving holiday, earning a projected $110 million over the course of the five day celebration. It will also surpass $500 million at the worldwide box office later today!


The Hunger Games: Catching Fire took an amazing $31.3 million yesterday, putting it well on track to earning $500 million worldwide. With a current domestic haul of $253.3 million, its total cume today stands at $482.3 million. The Francis Lawrence helmed sequel is currently on course to have one of the best second weekends in the history of the North American box office with a five day Thanksgiving total of $110 million, and north of $75 million for the weekend itself. Despite facing stiff competition from Frozen, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire now holds the prestigious honour of being the highest grossing Thanksgiving movie. Meanwhile, Spike Lee's Oldboy is a massive flop as it now looks likely to gross an embarrassing $1.2 million for the five days.






THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
