The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opened to $158.1 million this weekend (adjusted from the original estimate of $161.1) making it the best November opening ever, a title previously held by Twilight sequel, New Moon.
In addition to this, it is the 6th biggest opening ever and the 3rd best among 2D-only movies. Catching Fire is currently the #1 movie in the world having earned $138.4 million in international markets. Definitely a very strong start!
