Box Office: Mockingjay wins Thanksgiving weekend

For a second year in a row, moviegoers rushed into theaters following their Thanksgiving feasts to quench their appetite for movies and once again, the Suzanne Collins-based franchise was the big winner, as (Lionsgate) remained #1 for a second weekend in a row with an estimated $57 million for the three-day weekend and $88.7 million including Wednesday and Thursday. This is a similar 53% drop-off to last year’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which earned $74.2 million over the three-day weekend and $110 million in five days.
