Although Mirror Mirror and Wrath of the Titans brought in big bucks in their opening weekend, they were no match for The Hunger Games. The movie managed to bring in another $61.1 1 million, pushing its domestic total to $251 million. The Lionsgate flick crossed $250 million in only 10 days–the fastest ever for a non-sequel.
The 2010 sequel to Clash of the Titans, Wrath of the Titans, pulled in $34.2 million. Warner Bros. knew the sequel wouldn’t match Clash of the Titans’ $61.2 million opening, however, tracking had suggested Wrath would open in the $35 million to $40 million.
Mirror Mirror, a spin on one of my favorite fairy tales Snow White, was expected to open in the low to mid $20 million range, but fell slightly short with a total of $19 million, in a disappointing start for the high-profile title. The film serves as the first of two Snow White films opening this year, though the Kristen Stewart version, Snow White and the Huntsman, isn’t as family friendly as Julia Roberts‘. Take a look at the full Top 10 list below:
#1 The Hunger Games $61.1 million
#2 Wrath of the Titans $34.2 million
