Part I Opening Weekend Preview
When "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I" comes out this weekend, it should do something no other film this year has been able to do - make well over $100 million opening weekend. There has only been one movie in 2014 that has had a $100 million opening weekend. Last year, three movies crossed the $100 million mark opening weekend - "Iron Man 3," "Man of Steel," and "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.". The last time we've only seen only two movies open above $100 million opening weekend was in 2009 when "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" came out. For one thing, more movies have debuted in the $90-$100 million range than previous years. The last sequel, "Fast 6," made $120 million opening Memorial Day Weekend. After tickets went on sale, both Fandango and MovieTickets.com reported the movie had the largest first day advance ticket sale of the year. BoxOffice.com estimates the film will debut to $150 million.
