HUNGER GAMES CONTINUES TO DEVOUR BOX OFFICE

March 28, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

The Hunger Games continued to pack ’em in on Monday, selling tickets at a clip that would have delighted any studio on a weekend day. The movie earned $10.82 million, the most any film has ever earned on a non-holiday Monday in March. The film is also likely to perform solidly throughout the week, given its strong tailwind after taking in $152.5 million over the weekend. It is also likely to perform strongly next week as many schools close down for their annual spring vacation. Meanwhile shares of Lionsgate, the studio that produced The Hunger Games, fell in early trading largely due to profit-taking and comments from analysts that the stock is fully valued. After closing at $14.22 on Tuesday, they pulled back 4.22 percent at midday today to $13.62.
