It seems that "one or two" people went to see The Hunger Games this weekend...
Lionsgate just revised upwards its worldwide total to a massive $214.25 million for The Hunger Games which was projected to be the No. 1 title in virtually every single market globally. The studio reports this morning that this opening weekend’s North American grosses for Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games total a humongous $155 million after making $68M Friday and $51M Saturday anticipating a decent $36M Sunday hold.
Lionsgate also finally reported its weekend international numbers which were a very strong $59.25M and tracking ahead of the first Twilight Saga film.
I am going to see it on Wednesday night and am trying to keep my expectations low...just in case.
However, the reviews have been pretty good and, from what I've heard from people who read the books and saw the movie, they appear to have done a good job translating it as well.
If you saw it, what did you think?
