by on Mar.25, 2012, under Movies

The Hunger Games simply demolished the weekend box office, with an expected $155 million total domestic take for the weekend which places it third all time behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 ($162.2m) and The Dark Night ($158.4m), while eclipsing both of The Twilight Saga‘s recent issues, New Moon ($142.m) and Breaking Dawn, Part 1 ($138.1m), as well as Spider-Man 3 ($151.1m). This also means it is the biggest opening all time for a non-sequel. Go Katniss!

Update 3/26: The actuals from the weekend placed it slightly lower, at $152.5 million, but still safely in 3rd place.
