[Movies] The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Beats Iron Man 3 In 2013 Domestic Box Office
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.10.2014



Coming Soon reports that Lionsgate's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is now the highest-grossing domestic film in 2013. It earned $493,000 to get a total of $409.4 million in its first 49 days of release. This beats Iron Man 3 domestically (which had $409 million), but not worldwide, as Iron Man still has $1.215 billion.

Catching Fire previously set records for the biggest November opening weekend of all time ($158.1 million) and the biggest three and five day Thanksgiving box office totals ever. It's the 13th highest-grossing North American release ever and is still in wide release. It passed the first film, which earned $408 million domestically, and is the fifth-fastest film ever to hit $400 million domestically.

This is the first time ever that the first two installments of a franchise have passed the $400 million at the domestic box office. Both films are in the top fifteen domestic releases in history. It has $428.8 million internationally for a total of $838.2 million in its first seven weeks, compared to the $691 million for the first film in its entire run. Catching Fire is the first 2D film to get to #1 for the year since 2008.

Lionsgate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer said: "The Hunger Games franchise continues to evolve into a truly global phenomenon. The success of 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' is a testament to the vision of author Suzanne Collins, the sure hand of director Francis Lawrence, the brilliant performances of a remarkably talented cast led by the amazing Jennifer Lawrence and superb execution by our motion picture production, marketing and distribution teams. We will continue to grow the transformative 'Hunger Games' franchise in the years to come even as we continue to develop a dynamic portfolio of premium new brands."

The next two Hunger Games films are Mockingjay Part 1 (November 21, 2014) and Mockingjay Part 2 (November 20, 2015).
