The Hunger Games Box Office Records

The Hunger Games Makes History at the Box Office

It was an incredibly exciting weekend at the box office for The Hunger Games, which annihilated the competition with $155 million — the third highest opening weekend of all time! The film also set new records for the highest midnight opening for a non-sequel and the best opening day and weekend for a non-sequel. 21 Jump Street trailed in a very distant second with $21.3 million, pushing The Lorax down to third with $13.1 million. John Carter took fourth place with $5 million, and Act of Valor retained the number five spot with $2 million.
