‘Catching Fire’ Is 2013’s Box Office Champion
It may not still be pulling in the big bucks, but The Hunger Games: Catching Fire had a good week at the box office.
First, on Tuesday, its box office passed the first Hunger Games movie, which made $408 million in 2012. Then, at some point yesterday, someone walked up to a kiosk and asked for a ticket to Catching Fire, his or her $12 dollars pushing the movie’s total box office haul above that of Iron Man 3, making Catching Fire the top-grossing film released in 2013. So far, Catching Fire has earned $409.4 million.
In addition to topping the list of 2013’s highest grossing films, Catching Fire is now the 13th highest-grossing film of all time. All in all, a pretty good haul for Katniss Everdeen.
