We know that ‘The Hunger Games’ is topping North American box office sales but how well is it doing in Singapore?
F*** Magazine reports according to press release from Cathay-Keris Films, grossing for ‘The Hunger Games’ movie in Singapore box office sales is out performing other Asian territories.
According to the press release by Cathay-Keris Films, the Jennifer Lawrence starrer has collected over S$4 million in its first 3 weeks. This impressive box office result puts Singapore as the best performing Asian territory in terms of print average.
Locally, the movie has outshined the likes of popular film franchise, Twilight. The highest grossing title in the Twilight movie series in Singapore is The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which closed at S$3.07 million gross after a 7-week run in the local cinemas.
In the United States, The Hunger Games has been maintaining a firm foothold over its #1 spot on the box office for three consecutive weeks, bringing in a worldwide taking of US$460 million.
