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. » 1/22/15 4:30pm 1/22/15 4:30pm

Mockingjay – Part 1 hit theaters last night, and according to Variety, it's already raked in $17 million. That's the biggest Thursday night of the year, stomping Guardians of the Galaxy ($11.2 million) and Captain America: The Winter Solider ($10.2 million).

The audio was out, but thank goodness, now we have video.
