Bow: 'Catching Fire' Ablaze, Scores Massive $307.7 Million Globally



In North America, the sequel scores the top November opening of all time with $161.1 million; "Delivery Man" marks Vince Vaughn's worst nationwide launch for a movie opening in more than 1,000 theaters. (lol)

Catching Fire scored the top November opening of all time domestically with $161.1 million, slaying the record set by fellow YA film adaptation The Twilight Saga: New Moon ($142.8). The sequel, earning an A CinemaScore, marks another major victory for Lionsgate and is reaching a broader audience than Hunger Games did, with males making up 12 percent more of the audience.

Overseas, where it is rolling out in 65 markets, Catching Fire took in $146.6 million. The movie is doing double the business of Hunger Games in most countries.

In its November slot, Catching Fire faces far more competition than Hunger Games did, including Thor: The Dark World, which is heading into its third weekend. The first Hunger Games also had the advantage of opening during the spring break corridor.

Hunger Games topped out at $408 million domestically and $283.2 million internationally for a global total of $691.2 million; Catching Fire is expected to do substantially more.

Directed by Francis Lawrence, the sequel returns Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in the lead roles. Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland, Stanley Tucci, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Sam Claflin and Jena Malone also star.
