‘Hunger Games’ Rakes In $155M

Moviegoers the world over are sating their appetites for The Hunger Games by helping it gain the third-best domestic debut of all time with a $155 million weekend box office. It trails only the final Harry Potter movie ($169.2 million) and The Dark Knight ($158.4 million). The Hunger Games is also the biggest-grossing opening for a nonsequel. With two more books to cover, the games must go on, to the glee of producers at Lionsgate, as another blockbuster movie franchise is born.
