Divergent is off to a good start! The film earned $4.9 million dollars on it’s opening night, and according to THR the film could take in up to $60 million this weekend!
Based on prerelease tracking, box-office observers believe the movie could post an opening weekend gross as high as $60 million (Summit is being more conservative and saying $50 million-plus). While neither number will match Summit’s Twilight and Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games, it would break the curse that has plagued nearly every other YA film adaptation and provide a strong launch for what’s a planned franchise.
While we don’t know how much it will make this weekend , the strong opening sure is encouraging!
