As had largely been expected, Katniss Everdeen cut James Bond’s record-breaking run at the top of the U.K. box office shortly after three weeks.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 – the fourth and final installment of the franchise – took an estimated $17 million in its opening weekend from 1,613 screens. While this was the biggest ever screen count for the series in the U.K. and Lionsgate U.K.’s widest release, the film still fell short of its predecessor’s debut by almost $3 million, echoing international trends.
Spectre, however, fell by 50 percent for a $5.8 million fourth weekend to take the second spot. The drop now sees the film tracking behind Skyfall in the U.K., having amassed $128.3 million after 28 days compared to $130.4 million.
