    Divergent Box Office Thread

    Divergent's $56 million debut was down 20 percent from the first Twilight, and wasn't in the same league as The Hunger Games. Still, it ranks second among 2014 movies, and eighth all-time for March releases. It also earned more in its first three days than the combined totals of YA flops Beautiful Creatures, The Host and Vampire Academy.

    • The film is pretty good. It should grow its fan base.

    • Weekend 2:
      Lionsgate's Divergent fell one spot to place in second with an estimated $26.5 million. The young adult adaptation starring Shailene Woodley was down 51 percent from last weekend, which represents a relatively strong second weekend hold for a young adult adaptation. In comparison, 2008's Twilight fell 62 percent in its second weekend to gross $26.34 million, while last year's Ender's Game fell 62 percent to gross $10.26 million. Divergent has grossed a healthy $95.26 million through ten days of release. That places the film 20 percent behind the $119.71 million ten-day start of Twilight and 116.5 percent ahead of the $44.01 million ten-day take of Ender's Game. This weekend's hold strongly suggests that Divergent is helping greatly expand the already existing fanbase for the Divergent series as a whole.

      Overseas debut starts this week. Let's see how foreign results come in.
