Hunger Games Intrade Prices Exploding

Prices on most of “The Hunger Games” contracts exploded in early evening trading…

The frantic action was most likely based off this tweet by “Box Office Guru” Gitesh Pandya

The Hunger Games Opening Weekend

March 22, 2012 Leave a comment

“The Hunger Games” is set to invade the box office this weekend at 4,137 theaters (including 268 IMAX locations). Early tracking numbers three weeks ago projected Hunger Games as a $75m+ opener, quite an accomplishment for a non-sequel March opener. Since then the buzz surrounding the film’s opener has exploded and now industry insiders speculate that the movie may smash both the March and non-sequel opening weekend record (both held by “Alice in Wonderland” – $116.1m) and gross as much as $140m this weekend.

Taking a look at prominent box office projection sites and columnists (I will continue to update this list)…

The Weekend Warrior – $121.5m
BoxOffice.com – $125m
FilmGo – $148m
Movie Critic Assassins – $133m
Box Office Guru (Gitesh Pandya) – $125m
World of KJ – $120m-$130m

I plan to see what the midnight numbers are for the film tonight before posting a final projection. I’m currently trying to short the $130m, $135m, and $140m contracts on Intrade.
