Jennifer Lawrence stuns on 'Hunger Games' carpet.
Everybody’s hungry for Hunger Games!

With a record-breaking opening weekend under her belt, Jennifer Lawrence was all smiles as she greeted hundreds of awaiting fans at a Hunger Games event in Madrid. The 21-year-old looked positively chic in a multi-colored frock as she waved to her fellow Mockingjays from the red carpet.

So how did J-Law’s movie do on its opening weekend?

The much-anticipated film shattered records at the box office — earning $19 million in midnight screenings alone and an overall $155 million from North American theaters, according to reports. The flick broke the record of biggest non-sequel opening ever and currently holds the spot of Lionsgate’s top-grossing film of all time. It also surpassed The Twilight Saga: New Moon‘s big $142 million weekend.

Globally, the movie raked in $214.3 million, Reuters reports. It also currently holds to the record for the biggest March opening of all time — a spot once reigned by Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland with $116 million.

It looks like Jennifer has a lot more reasons to keep smiling!
