Mockingjay Was the Top-Grossing Film of 2014


Thanks to over $333 million in box office sales, The Hunger Games Mockingjay – Part 1 has edged out Guardians of the Galaxy to become the highest grossing film of 2014. Katniss continues to reign supreme.

Consider this a win for womankind, too. Deadline reports:

This is the first time in box office history two films in a franchise ranked as the No. 1 titles at the domestic box office for two years in a row — no other Harry Potter, Twilight or Lord Of The Rings has ever done so. Not to mention, it’s the first time a studio has had back-to-back annual No. 1 titles in decades (since box office charts began publishing in 1982, there haven’t been any studios logging back-to-back annual No. 1 hits). Also, it’s an anomaly that the No. 1-grossing film two years in a row features a female lead.

Look at the joy on Jennifer Lawrence’s face.
