Box Office: ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2’ Aims for $102 Million Weekend

The final chapter in The Hunger Games saga, Mockingjay — Part 2, is on track to hit a $102 million bullseye in its opening weekend, based on Friday receipts. The fourth installment in the Jennifer Lawrence-led series hit a total of $46 million Friday at 4,175 locations, handily topping all other titles at the box office. The Lionsgate release started strong in Thursday night previews, generating $16 million. Earlier estimates had pegged the actioner’s three-day total around $110 million. This marks the lowest opening day in the “Hunger Games” franchise. The three earlier “Hunger Games” pics performed mightily at the box office, combining for $2.3 billion in worldwide grosses. “Mockingjay — Part 1” opened to $121.9 million domestically following the first film’s $152.5 million launch and “Catching Fire’s” $158.1 million kickoff. Should it hit its expected mark, “Mockingjay — Part 2” will be the year’s fifth-biggest U.S. opening, behind “Jurassic World” ($208.8 million), “Avengers: Age of Ultron” ($191.3 million), “Furious 7 ” ($147.2 million) and “Minions” ($115.7 million).Variety‘s Peter Debruge had high praise for the fourth “Hunger Games” pic in his review, saying it contains “one of the heartiest character arcs ever afforded a young female protagonist.”
