The Hunger Games: Catching Fire blazes to $146m internationally

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire dominated the international weekend box office, debuting on an impressive $146m after claiming a hatful of No.1’s.  The film was active in 64 international markets and the UK led the way on $19.8m with Lionsgate’s highest ever opening for the territory.  After factoring in North America, Catching Fire has already amassed over $300m globally.


Alfonso Cuarón’s award season contender, ‘Gravity’, arrived in China where it earned a jaw dropping $35.5m with Imax screens contributing $7.4m towards the tally.  Catching Fire’s release in the territory just two days later will damage the prospects for both films being a deliberate ploy by the protectionist local film industry.


Last weekend’s No. 1, Thor: The Dark World, took a further $24.8m internationally, increasing its running total to $381m.  The Disney sequel remains a presence in 72 territories.
