‘The Hunger Games Mockingjay – Part 2’ Leaves Behind The Grossing of ‘In The Heart of the Sea’

It has been recently reported that “The Hunger Games Mockingjay – Part 2” remains at the top in its fourth week leaving behind Warner Bros’ latest release “In The Heart of the Sea” which opened at $11M in the United States.

The news has been a major setback for the film that had a big budget of $100 million for its filming. Starring Chris Hemsworth, the film is based on the whale ship survival story directed by Ron Howard. The next weekend, when the ultimate saga of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will be released, the movie will have to face a long struggle.

When overseas digits are compared, the news is even much bad from there. Screened in almost 52 markets, “In The Heart of the Sea” grossed $12.6 million for a 12-day foreign total of $39.4 million.

Running for four weeks now, “Mockingjay 2” has done exceptionally well throughout major parts of the globe and bagged huge recognition considering Jennifer Lawrence. The starlet has been widely admired for her polished acting skills and screen presence.

All credits to the team, “Mockingjay 2” is still running successfully in theaters. “In The Heart Of The Sea” has  got another bad news for Warner Bros. The studio’s finances have been dealing with troubles, especially when the compensations are being made by various other supporting partners that include Village Roadshow Pictures. However, Warner Bros has kept its hope alive with overseas performance of the movie.

“In The Heart Of The Sea” star-cast, including Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Tom Holland, Ben Whishaw, and Brendan Gleeson, believe that their efforts will definitely be recognized and the film will somehow do great in the next few days time. The story of the film deals with the drowning of ship Essex in 1820. Cinema Score reveals that almost 46 percent of the film’s audience has been in the age group of above 50 that means the movie is just a no-no for young viewers.
