The US Box Office Results Wrap Up
with Sean Lynch

No surprises that the #1 movie at the USA Box Office this week was The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which scored the best opening of 2014 - but strangely was also the lowest opening weekend for the franchise.

Some suggest this lower take could have something to do with Christopher Nolan's Interstellar locking up a large portion of IMAX screens (which tend to demand higher ticket prices). Speaking of which Nolan's sci-fi epic dropped 47% in its third week and has now clocked $120.7M domestically.

If it continues its success over the next few weeks it will soon surpass Seth Rogen's Bad Neighbors as the top-grossing film of 2014 not based on a pre-existing franchise. Worldwide it has grossed $449.7M worldwide.

Word of mouth has led Dumb and Dumber To to drop a whopping 62% in its second weekend, proving that nostalgia doesn't equal success ALL the time.
