‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Scorches With $161.1 Million Opening

Fire was catching at the movies this weekend, as the sequel to “The Hunger Games” became one of the year’s biggest hits.

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” opened with $161.1 million at the domestic weekend box office, according to studio estimates Sunday, making it the biggest November debut ever as well as Lionsgate’s most lucrative opening.

The result fell short of some expectations and failed to dethrone the year’s biggest box-office opening, “Iron Man 3” with $174 million. But the film opened massively worldwide, taking in a total of $307.7 million.
