‘Insurgent’ Falls Short of ‘Divergent’ in Final Box Office

Insurgent” fell short of “Divergent’s” opening weekend after final box office numbers were tallied on Monday.

Its debut of $52.3 million is lower than the $54 million that Lionsgate, the studio behind the futuristic films, estimated “Insurgent” would deliver in its initial frame. It also trails “Divergent’s” $54.6 million opening weekend.

Going into the weekend, pre-release tracking suggested that “Insurgent” would have a bigger debut than its predecessor, pulling in $57 million-$60 million. The film was expected to benefit from star Shailene Woodley’s higher profile in the wake of last summer’s hit, “The Fault in Our Stars.” Unlike “Divergent,” the latest film also screened in 3D, allowing it to charge premium prices on some tickets.

Lionsgate originally projected that “Insurgent” would pull in $19.9 million on Saturday and $12.8 million on Sunday, but the final figures were lower than expected. The film made $19.7 million on Saturday and $11.4 million on Sunday.

Overseas, the film generated $47 million across 76 markets, according to estimates provided on Sunday. That’s outpacing “Divergent’s” run in those territories by more than 30%.
