The Hunger Games, is the highest grossing non-sequel in history beating its rival The Twilight Saga which only took in $69.6 million during its opening weekend back in November 2008, reports contactmusic.com.

The film sees a glittering cast of young and older actors mix in a classy sci-fi adaptation of Suzanne Collins' novel which sees 24 youths forced to compete in a televised death match in a post-apocalyptic North American society.
