BOX OFFICE: "Hunger Games: Mockingjay" Wins Thanksgiving Weekend

The Thanksgiving weekend was easily won by "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1," earning an estimated $82.7 million over the five-day holiday, bringing its domestic haul up to $225 million in its second week. However, Variety reports that "Mockingjay" is down from the record-setting $110 million earned by last year's "Hunger Games" installment, "Catching Fire."

Variety also notes that the overall box office numbers are down 20% from last year's holiday weekend, which were also helped by Disney's "Frozen" -- the second-highest Thanksgiving performer with $93 million, and second-highest release for the holiday.
