The Hunger Games wins the top spot at the box office

The Hunger Games has come to a close, but it is doing so in what is a quiet moment for the series.

1. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 opened in the top spot this weekend with $101M. While a good opening by just about any measure, it is the lowest opening of the series. GLobally it stands at $247M.

2. Spectre

James Bond is back, but it appears he has lost some of his magic since Skyfall. While Spectre still took in a respectable $14.6M in its third weekend in the U.S., it is trailing Skyfall by $68M at this point in its run. That being said, the film stands at $677.8M globally off of a $245M budget – although some reports peg it higher – so it’s still in good shape and should be in profit at this point.

3. The Peanuts Movie

The Peanuts Movie had a decent third weekend to take in $12.8M for a new domestic total of $98.9M off of a $99M budget.

4. The Night Before

The new Seth Rogen film opened fairly weekly in fourth place with $10.1M off of a $25M budget.

5. The Secret in Their Eyes

The new star powered thriller The Secret in Their Eyes opened in fifth place with just $6.63M off a budget of $19.5M. Not a great start by any means.
