The odds are very much in you favor this weekend, Lionsgate. CHA-CHING!

As anticipated, The Hunger Games was a massive success at the box office yesterday, raking in a massively impressive $68.3 million at the box office. With that haul, The Hunger Games earns the honor of the best opening day ever for a nonsequel and the fifth highest of all time.

A good junk of the dough made yesterday came from the midnight showings, which earned $19.7 million. While it didn't quite beat the records set by its collegues Harry Potter and Edward Cullen of Twilight, according to analysts, the film is headed for a record-breaking $140 million to $150 million debut, securing it's place among the other franchises.

In other words, this is just the beginning! Just wait until the weekend is over! And then NEXT YEAR, wait and see how Catching Fire does!

This is gonna be BIG!

Did U see the Hunger Games this weekend? Did it live up to the hype for U? Were you super impressed with Jennifer Lawrence and the team?

    I saw this movie Friday afternoon, and I'm already making plans to go see it again next weekend. I was so impressed. It's easily the best book-to-movie adaptation I've ever seen, and it deserves all this success. Now there's only 607 days left to wait till Catching Fire…



  2. 2

    By far one of the best movies I've seen in a while, Wish there was more gore though!



  3. 3

    it was SOOOOO good!!!!



  4. 4

    I agree it was great, except for the camera shaking at the start… But I still loved it!



  5. 5

    They didn't develop the characters or the relationships well enough. It was good and I think the actors were fantastic.



  6. 6

    Loved it! Can't wait for the next installment.

    WASTE of Money…disappointing



  8. 8

    Great except for the shaking camera work at times. You lost a lot in that movement. Hope the rest of the series is not filmed this way.
