Insurgent To Score A $57M Opening?

Industry tracking figures suggest that next month’s sequel “The Divergent Series: Insurgent” is on track for a $57 million opening weekend, a number that would put it slightly higher than the $54.6 million the first film opened to last March.

Tickets for the film went on sale yesterday at Fandango and MovieTickets.com and total awareness for the film is said to be quite high with females under 25 showing the strongest interest at 83%.

“Insurgent” is also expected to get an extra boost from a run in IMAX theaters which the first film did not receive. “Insurgent” is currently slated to open around much of the world on March 20th.
