The main news that has been sprouting up this week so far has been that The Hunger Games has secured the third biggest opening weekend on record. Falling just behind Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 and The Dark Knight. It is however the highest non-sequel film which was currently held by Alice In Wonderland and the highest ever outside of the summer release season. Quite a start for the highly anticipated film. Another great thing is that it beat those Twilight movies in highest grossing stakes as well. Fantastic!
If you haven't seen it yet I suggest you get out there and see it. It is very good, so don't let anything about it put you off. The figures of its opening weekend alone show that it is already hugely popular.
1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow Part 2 - $169.2 million
2. The Dark Knight - $158.4 million
3. The Hunger Games - $155 million
4. Alice In Wonderland - $116.1 million
