Its looking like when ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ is released on November 22nd, all of its competition should prepare to be annihilated. ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ is projected to open with between $140 million and $150 million. Some even believe the sequel could reach up to $185 million. The latter opening would be more than ‘The Hunger Games’, which opened with $152.5 million (which is still pretty great).
Now lets pretend that ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ actually opens with $185 million. That would give it the biggest opening of the year by a little more than $10 million. The new number two would then be “Iron Man 3” which opened with around $174 million and would end Marvel’s chances of having the movie with the biggest opening for two straight years (unless ‘Thor: The Dark World’ goes way beyond its expectations).
If ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ doesn’t reach the $185 threshold and only gets up to somewhere between $140 and $150, it would still find itself around the top of the biggest openings list for the year. The sequel would come in at number two behind ‘Iron Man 3’ and in front of ‘Man of Steel’, which had an opening of $116.6 million. Even if ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ doesn’t reach any of these large amounts, I’m sure it’ll do pretty well and make lots and lots and lots and lots of money.
