In an international view, The Hunger Games was less interesting and garnered a mediocre $59.25 million--second biggest international debut of 2012--from 69 markets for the #1 seat this weekend. A low opening internationally is expected as the book is less known overseas and the marketing efforts of Lion Gate were effete and powerless compared to its efficacious and powerful domestic promotion. However, if a sequel is to be made(which is very likely), higher international grosses wouldn't be a surprise. In present time, nonetheless, The Hunger Games, wouldn't have much trouble to aim north of $234 million from non-North American markets.
Worldwide Forecast: $582 million
UPDATE:*Catching Fire sequel is in works as announced by Lionsgate.
This week is going to be interesting to see how much the film drops...
