So, this is the weekend "The Hunger Games" takes over the world.
But seriously. The latest box office numbers project a $165 million three-day domestic open for "Catching Fire." Add Thanksgiving week and strong holdover audiences, and that makes a $385 million projected domestic total, with international receipts sure to push Lionsgate's pic past a billion.
