Divergent

Lionsgate’s “Divergent” has broken the $100 million mark at the domestic box office in its 14th day of release.

The post-apocalyptic teen romance grossed $1.484 million Thursday for a domestic total of $101 million.

Starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James, the film launches in several  international territories this weekend, including the U.K., Benelux, Italy and Mexico.

Lionsgate said “Divergent” is the 12th film in its history (including predecessor companies) to hit the $100 million mark, including the five “Twilight” films, the two “Hunger Games films,” “Now You See Me,” “The Expendables,” “Fahrenheit 9/11″ and “The Blair Witch Project.”

The first “Twilight” film reached $100 million in eight days, comparatively, and went on to earn $192.8 million at the domestic box office.
