Final Tally: "Hunger Games" Box Office Total Smaller Than Estimated 


Hold on! Before you start unleashing your swords and weapons, hear this -- "The Hunger Games" STILL has the third biggest opening weekend ever!

BUT, its final total, suggesting $155 million, was actually more like $152.5 million. Have no fear, it's still bigger than any of the "Twilight" movies! So there.

Based on the bestselling young-adult novel by Suzanne Collins and starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, blame Lionsgate, the film's distributor, for the minor brouhaha.

According to E!, the projection for Sunday's box-office was the culprit. Lionsgate said the film made $36 million that day, but it actually ended up with $34.9 million. Whew, thank Capitol we cleared that one.
