Quick update on this. THG completed its third week at #1 - the last film to spend longer than that on top was Avatar
, more than two years ago. It has passed the $300 million mark, and depending how it holds could end up at $380 million, which would be more than the entire Resident Evil series PLUS the Kate Beckinsale Underworld films, combined...
The Hunger Games becomes the 37th most successful film of all-time and will enter the top 25 within the next week or so. To put this performance into perspective, consider that it has now earned more than any Twilight film (ha ha!), as well as every Harry Potter film except for the first one and the last one. Source
Ironically, the biggest action heroine movie in history, and I still haven't seen it. :)
