NEWS: 'The Hunger Games' grosses $600 million worldwide, exceeds the final 'Harry Potter'

Tributes/Hunger Gamers, let's celebrate! Entertainment Weekly reports that The Hunger Games has now grossed more than $600 million at the worldwide box-office, surpassing the revenue that the final Harry Potter (Deathly Hallows Part 2) earned at this point of its release.
Close behind, The Hunger Games dipped by a tiny 23 percent and earned $11.3 million in its sixth weekend on the chart. With a running total of $372.5 million, the franchise-launching blockbuster is now officially performing ahead of the highest-grossing Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, which had earned $366 million at the same point in its run. Worldwide, Hunger Games‘ impressive $601 million total doesn’t compare toPotter‘s grosses, but one can only wonder how high numbers will climb by the time The Hunger Games Saga: Catching Fire – Part 2 (Section B) in IMAX 3Dfinally hits theaters in 2016.
NOTE: Just ignore the part about Catching Fire Part 2 in 2016. It's just a joke. ;)
