The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 has stormed to the top of the U.S. box office, taking $123 million in its opening weekend.

Mockingjay - Part 1 is one of the most anticipated movies of 2014, as the finale to The Hunger Games series has been kicked off with this film.

However, we are going to have to wait another year until we learn the fate of Katniss Everdeen and co in the war against the Capitol.

There was no move for Big Hero 6 at two, but it never challenged Mockingjay - Part 1 for the top spot, as it took a further $20 million.

Interstellar was also a none-mover at three, while Dumb and Dumber To was down three places from one to four. The sequel to the popular nineties film sees Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels return as Lloyd and Harry, but the movie only spent one week in the #1 spot.

Gone Girl was the third film not to move inside the top five, as it stayed put at five. Beyond The Lights was down two at six, while St Vincent was down one at seven.

Fury was also down a single place at eight, while Birdman was the only movie on the up this week. The possible Oscar contender - and it really is one of the frontrunners for Best Picture at the moment - was up from ten to nine.

Nightcrawler has been enjoying critical success in recent weeks, but it was down one this week from nine to ten.
