    032612: Weekend Box Office Results

    Posted: 26 Mar 2012 03:22 AM PDT

    The Hunger Games Win At Box Office

    The big winner on the big screen this past weekend – The Hunger Games earning an estimated $155 million from Friday through Sunday. That’s also one for the record books as it’s the most successful debut ever for a non-sequel. The only films to pull in more cash during their opening weekend were Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 which pulled in $169.2 million when it opened last year. To further put The Hunger Games total revenue into somewhat of a perspective, the top three Oscar-winners for 2012 – The Artist, Hugo and The Iron Lady - drew a combined $145.6 million during their entire box office runs.

    Meanwhile, last weeks number one box office movie – 21 Jump Street - slipped to second place.
