The domestic box office hit $233.8 million as of Wednesday and the international box office cume has reached $271 million.
“Mockingjay” is the 128th film to gross at least $500 million worldwide. It’s also the seventh highest U.S. grosser this year and trails the top 2014 release, Disney-Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” by less than $100 million.
The Jennifer Lawrence tentpole is also more than halfway to matching the domestic total of $425 million for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
Overseas, “Mockingjay” has taken in 60% of the final $440 million total for “Catching Fire.” The U.K. is the top market with $33 million so far.
The third chapter in Lionsgate’s futuristic franchise should easily win the upcoming weekend at the U.S. box office with more than $20 million.
“Catching Fire” had grossed $306.7 million in its first 13 days in the U.S. It won the third weekend with $26 million to lift its total to $336 million at that point.
