Novembers Top Box Office Openings

30 Nov

Last weekend, ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ set a November box office record with the highest opening for the month ever with a little more than $158 million brought in. With November coming to an end and ‘Catching Fire’ setting records, I thought it would be cool to see what other movies make up Novembers top ten all time box office openings list. Just a little heads up, you might see two popular franchises dominate this list and maybe even another movie from 2013 will appear too.



Opening Gross*

1. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) $158 million
2. The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009) $142.8 million
3 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012) $141 million
4. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) $138.1 million

November seems to be a popular month for popular books turned into movies. Comment below and tell whats your favorite movie from the list. I can’t choose my favorite but I’ll say its anything that’s not apart of ‘Twilight’.
