‘The Hunger Games: The Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes’ Devours $101M Global Opening – International Box Office Update

According to studio estimates released on Sunday, “The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes” grossed $44 million in ticket sales during its opening weekend in theatres across North America

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes” is a fascinating case study for a franchise that is testing the waters for a new age after going dormant for eight years. With $44 million from 3,776 locations, including 1,610 premium screens, the movie’s earnings set a series low. In their opening weekends, all four of the Jennifer Lawrence films grossed over $100 million: The first, with $158 million, was the highest point; the final, with $102.7 million in 2015, was the lowest.

Against a relatively low $100 million budget, the movie has already made $98.5 million out of the gate, with an additional $54.5 million from 87 outside countries. The prequel, which is 64 years before Katniss Everdeen appeared in the film and stars a new cast lead by Tom Blyth and Rachel Zegler, is off to a good start, according to the company.
