BRAZIL: 'Catching Fire' Goes Off in Brazil with $5.2M Debut

on November 20, 2013

THGCFStill.jpgA $5.2 million start for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a sign of what we should expect in the coming weeks across the global box office. The action sequel came in $1 million under Sunday’s estimates but still represents a marked improvement above the original’s $3 million bow in 2012. Catching Fire was the number one film of the weekend but finished behind the debut of Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine in per-screen average. Allen’s latest film took $481K in its premiere across 79 screens, beating Catching Fire’s $5,486 average with its own $6,091 average.

Thor: The Dark World is on the cusp of hitting the $20 million mark in Brazil after finishing its third weekend in the market with a $19.9 million cume. Only seven other films have grossed above $20 million in Brazil this year and Thor: The Dark World is on pace to move up to third place among the year’s highest grossers, behind Iron Man 3 ($47.8M) and Despicable Me 2 ($35.4M).

Domestic romantic comedy Meu Passado Me Condena broke the $10 million mark in its fourth weekend after posting a strong $1.4 million hold, only 13% below its previous frame. The film has grossed a total of $11.1 million and is the third-highest grossing domestic film of the year in Brazil.
