There’s no slowing down the voracious appetite for Gary Ross’ The Hunger Games.
Lionsgate’s film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ best-selling young-adult novel grossed $10.8 million on Monday — the best showing ever for a Monday outside of holidays, the Christmas stretch and summer.

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.
