While the debut of Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: MockingJay, Part One earned 35 million less than it’s predecessor, it still scored the best opening weekend of the year with 123M.  While it’s kind of a good news/bad news thing for the studio, most of their rivals could only dream of such a “disappointing” start.  It’s pretty safe bet that they’ll rebound nicely with the final installment.

Meanwhile, Dumb and Dumber To fell victim to word of mouth and fell around 61%. While that’s based on estimates, I have a feeling that they’re probably inflated to begin with so it’s safe to hand out points now.

Marco – 4.5
Joe Webb – 2.5
Jackrabbit Slim – .5
James – .5
Juan – 0
Rob – 0

  1. Yeah, pretty lousy opening there. Too long of a gap between films, poor reviews and a less relatable premise.

    Penguins’ opening is disappointing, too. There’s another franchise non-starter for Dreamworks.

  2. This week’s contest is going to be a weird one – as it’s possibly the least interesting weekend for new releases in all the years I’ve been doing this.
