The pic, opening to $152.5 million during the weekend, shattered a number of records in scoring the third-highest debut of all time behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($169.2 million) and The Dark Knight ($158.4 million), as well as the top opening outside of summer and the top opening for a nonsequel.

Hunger Games, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, should benefit next week from spring break and tweens and teens being out of school.
