Hunger Games Catching Fire Box office Wrap Up

What a weekend for fans of the Suzanne Collins Hunger Games: Catching Fire,  as they came out in droves to fuel Katniss and company to the largest November debut in box office history.

Hunger Games cruised to 161m domestically while dethroning Twighlight New Moon, The previous record holder at 142.8, giving Lionsgate the #1 young adult franchise.

Although  Hunger Games: Catching Fire may have disapointed somewhat at the Box office falling short of last years #1 movie Iron Man 3 (174m) and sitting fourth all time behind Marvel’s Avenger’s (207m) and Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows part 2 (169m).

But I am willing to bet Lionsgate will take it.

Whoa, guys, taking this "same team" thing a bit far.
well…

After an impressive opening Thor: The Dark World fell to #2 at 14.2m , and Best Man Holiday added another 12.5m to come in at third.

The other forgotten wide release was Vince Vaughn‘s Delivery Man sputtering in at a very disapointing 8.1 million. It truly looks as if Vince Vaughn has lost his place as a sure thing in Hollywood, As Delivery Man not only was trashed by critics and audiences but is Vaughn‘s worst movie opening ever, even behind 1998’s Psycho.

Here’s a look at Vince Vaughn‘s Box office history

Vaughn still has one untitled project due to come out next year, but that may very well be in jeopardy now, as it is very clear he can no longer carry a movie.
