In fact this is believed to be the lowest debut out of all “Hunger Games” movies. It has been predicted that the movie is likely to sweep around 120 million dollars when its total earnings are concerned.

When Suzanne Collins’ Panem got screened in 2012 March, almost $152.5 million have been made by the film peculiarly when the lead of the movie has been an actress.

While talking about the next part of the film i.e “Catching Fire,” the record was again broken as the movie made 158.1 million dollars, the best of all. While in 2014, when “Mockingjay – Part 1” was released, a notable dip in the total viewership of the film was observed. The film opened to $121.9 million and now it has been anticipated that the 2015 sequel is likely to close somewhere near to the previous year’s grossing.

There is good news for all “Mockingjay” fans that the film still exists as the fifth highest grossing debut of the year. It is also one of the five films that have made their debut over $100 million in the first week. It has also been revealed that the films have been put under an A- Cinema Score and also has not been much critically acclaimed as the first two films have been. Talking about other films released last week, “Spectre” and “The Peanuts Movie” have been at second and third places as “James Bond” made somewhere $14.6 million while Charlie Brown exists with $12.8 million.

When the entire box office receipts were calculated it has been almost 11 percent low as compared to the previous year. Let’s see how best Jennifer Lawerence’s charm and skills are able to gather more audiences for the film.
