THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE Rakes in $25.2 Million on Opening Night; Could Hit More than $160 Million Opening Weekend There was no question The Hunger Games: Catching Fire would be a big hit.  The only question was how big since it didn't have a 3D boost, but it did have IMAX.  Variety reports the highly-anticipated and well-reviewed sequel earned $25.2 million from domestic opening night screenings, and is now on track for a $160 million weekend.  If it surpasses that number it will break the record for biggest opening weekend for a 2D movie (a record currently held by The Dark Knight Rises, which opened to $160.9 million).  If Catching Fire sticks to analyst predictions, it should handily take the record for biggest November opening, which currently belongs to The Twilight Saga:
