Early predictions for Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” have it grossing a whopping $950 million in worldwide box office.
Wall Street analyst Alan Gould of Evercore is predicting a $375 million domestic and $575 million overseas haul for the film. That would make it the second highest grossing film of the year, behind only “Iron Man 3” and ahead of “Despicable Me 2”.
In comparison the first “Hunger Games” film made $408 million domestic and $283 million overseas. The analysts projects almost $400 million of profit for Lionsgate from ‘Catching Fire’.
