Today's News: Our Take - Box Office: Catching Fire Breaks Records, Vince Vaughn's Latest Opens Soft
Never underestimate the power of Katniss Everdeen.
The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire certainly lived up to its name this weekend, shattering a November record at the box office with an estimated $161.1 million in earnings. Not only is that about $10 million more than the original Hunger Games made in its opening weekend in 2012, but would also make Catching Fire the fourth-highest opening weekend ever, and the top grossing debut for a 2D-only movie, Box Office Mojo reports.
And, after opening wide this weekend, Dallas Buyers Club edged into the Top 10 with $2.8 million.
