NEWS: 'Catching Fire' Burns Up Box Office setting Thanksgiving Weekend Record with $110.2 Million

This past 5-day Thanksgiving weekend proved to be another successful weekend for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire with the gross of $110.2 million making it the highest grossing Thanksgiving movie of all time. The film is also the record holder for the highest Thanksgiving Day gross with $14.9 million. Catching Fire is still burning up the box office and has already grossed $576.1 million worldwide. 

Here's the report from Forbes:
Lionsgate’s Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Disney’s Frozen set some pretty big Thanksgiving box office records, scoring the biggest Thanksgiving weekend ($74.5 million Fri-Sun, $110.2m Wed-Sun) and biggest Thanksgiving debut weekend ($66.7m Fri-Sun, $93.3m Wed-Sun) respectively. Starting with Catching Fire, it trounced the twelve-year old record for a Thanksgiving weekend, the $82m second weekend of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Even if you want to play the “inflation” game, it’s still the third-biggest such haul behind Toy Story 2 ($127m) and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone ($117m). It’s $74.5m second weekend gives it the fourth-biggest non-opening weekend of all-time, behind The Avengers ($103m), Avatar ($75.6m), and The Dark Knight ($75.1m). The Jennifer Lawrence political thriller has a ten-day domestic cume of $296.5m and a worldwide total of $573m.
