Hunger Games beats Twilights November opening record

WHOOOOA! Talk about no competition!

It's like if Katniss and Bella were in the games together, we'd ALWAYS bet on the girl on fire!

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire shattered Twilight: New Moon's November opening weekend record by earning $161.1 million at the box office! Impressively, the film brought in $25.3 million on Thursday night ALONE!

This means that the Hunger Games made almost $20 million more than the $142 million New Moon made!!

Not only this, but Catching Fire also beat the first Hunger Games film's opening weekend which earned $152.5 million in 2012!

SO crazy!

But, honestly, who wouldn't want to watch Jennifer Lawrence be kick-ass, Josh Hutcherson be an adorable human being, and Liam Hemsworth broad over his love of Katnip!?!

No one! That's who!

    I wouldn't exactly call 19mill "destroying" it. From the way you worded your title, I was expecting at least a 50% gap.

    Hunger Games is about…. killing, killing kids. BAD BAD BAD

    Twilight saga has a beautiful love story.

    Whats wrong with the world, T.V. and movies?!

    I won't see HG not even for Liam

    Yes! Twilight is dull. I don't see a 'beautiful love story' at all. I see just Kristen's one weird face expression and Robert's awkward acting..
    Hunger Games is about so much more than killing! You have amazing and strong characters. Katniss is a real hero and leader unlike Bella.. And Peeta/Katniss relationship is great to watch :) I love them! Also the world Suzanne created is heartbreaking and scary at the same time. The movie was so well done! I loved every second of it. The acting, costumes, music and even looks exchanged between characters were just perfect! It brought me to tears so many times! I'm so glad they beated Twilight in the box office! CF was incredible!

    Well, no shit. Hunger Games is actually a good story, while Twilight is not.

    Re: MeganAlexis – Have to agree, those are not big numbesr especially when you have to take in all the costs aside from salaries.
    It is not my kind of movie (I am old and retired) but you folks enjoy it!

    Re: Twilight is way better – Let's face it, if Twilight was leading even by only a million, most (not all) of the Twilight fans will be flagging it right in front of our faces… Why can't some of you grow up and just leave it alone? You don't like THG anyway. If you think insulting THG here and saying that Twilight is much better and all will change their records or make the Twilight fandom look better or more powerful? NO, it doesn't, it makes all of you look immature and stupid (just for the record, I love THG just as much as Twilight).

    As much as I am super happy about the fact that Catching Fire is doing well, it's just so frustrating how people can't stop the comparisons between THG and Twilight… They are completely different… So what if it earned more than twilight for its opening weekend? It never actually accurately proved that it's better just that people are going all immature about it and more people were attracted to it and not necessarily better cuz I mean like, there is no comparison AT ALL, they are different and both (in my opinion) equally amazing… Congrats to CF!!
