Entertainment Weekly has reported that ‘The Hunger Games’ has grossed $601 Million Worldwide, surpassed the highest-grossing Harry Potter film, ‘Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows – Part 2’ !
Whoa, we definitely didn’t see this coming! 😮
Close behind, The Hunger Games dipped by a tiny 23 percent and earned $11.3 million in its sixth weekend on the chart. With a running total of $372.5 million, the franchise-launching blockbuster is now officially performing ahead of the highest-grossing Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, which had earned $366 million at the same point in its run. Worldwide, Hunger Games‘ impressive $601 million total doesn’t compare to Potter‘s grosses, but one can only wonder how high numbers will climb by the time The Hunger Games Saga: Catching Fire – Part 2 (Section B) in IMAX 3D finally hits theaters in 2016.
