Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 Tops US Box Office on Its Opening Weekend
Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 has topped the North American box office on its opening weekend, taking $101 million.

The first movie in the series took $152.5 million, the second $158.1 million and 2014’s Mockingjay – Part 1, $121.9 million.
So far, there have been only 34 movies in history to open at more than $100 million and each Hunger Games film has made it into that elite group.
Spectre was second on this week’s US box office chart, with $14. 6 million, followed by The Peanuts Movie with $12.8 million.
Seth Rogen’s comedy The Night Before opened in fourth spot, with $10.1 million, while Julia Roberts’ thriller The Secret in Their Eyes, a remake of the Oscar-winning Argentinean movie, debuted with $6.6 million.
The weekend was down 11% from last year but fans are waiting for Star Wars: The Force Awakens which opens on December 18.
