Box Office Breakdown: ‘Catching Fire’ Takes Down ‘Thor 2’

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Although Thor: The Dark World had a fairly good two-week run at the top, we all knew that it was short-lived with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on its way to theaters.

The sequel to last year's huge hit The Hunger Games took in $158 million, which makes it the biggest opening for a film in the month of November and the sixth biggest opening for a film overall (right behind The Dark Knight and above its predecessor by $6 million). Thor: The Dark World came in second with $14.1 million while The Best Man Holiday also slipped one position down to number three with $12.4 million. Vince Vaughn's Delivery Man debuted at number four with $7.9 million, and Free Birds hung in there dropping one spot to number five with $5.3 million.
