‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ On Pace for $130 Million After Topping Friday Box Office with $55 Million

News Helpline | November, 23 2014

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” roared into theaters with a $55 million first day at the box office Friday, and is on course to post the biggest opening weekend of 2014 with between $125 million and $130 million.

That's would be well over the $100 million that “Transformers: Age of Extinction” debuted with in June, but at the low end of the expectations of distributor Lionsgate and analysts, who projected the third entry in the franchise finale starring Jennifer Lawrence would take in between $130 million and $150 million.

The first day for “Mockingjay” also was considerably below that of the two previous entries in the young adult series based on Suzanne Collins‘ best-selling sci-fi trilogy. “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” posted a $70 million Friday on its way to a $158 million debut on this weekend last year. And “The Hunger Games” brought in $67 million on its first day, on the way to a $152.5 million opening in March of 2012.   

Lionsgate is rolling out “Mockingjay,” directed by Francis lawrence, in 85 foreign markets this weekend as well, and it has brought in an estimated $67 million already with No. 1 openings in virtually every market.
