Box Office: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Breaks Opening Weekend Record For 2014

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 box office

As expected, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 scored the biggest opening weekend of 2014 so far. After a strong start with a $55 million opening day on Friday, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 grossed an estimated $123 million at the U.S. box office over the weekend.

In what has been a relatively light year at the U.S. box office in regards to opening weekends, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is only the second movie this year to open in the triple digit millions. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 beat the previous 2014 record holder Transformers: Age of Extinction, which opened to just over $100 million at the U.S box office.

Big Hero 6 took a distant second place at the U.S. box office with $20 million, Interstellar took third place with $15 million, and Dumb and Dumber To and Gone Girl rounded out the top five with $13.8 million and $2.8 million respectively.
