Box Office: How much will “Catching Fire” cash in?

fire2It’s not in 3D, but “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” should ignite the box office this weekend, busting records for sequels, November movies, what have.

Good reviews won’t hurt, either.

Box Office Mojo figures it’ll pull in just under $170 million.

The Box Office Guru predicts over $180 million.

Variety took this occasion to remind us that “The Avengers” opened at over $207 million, which is the all time record. All time best sequel opening? “Iron Man 3,” at just over $174. That record is within reach.

“Delivery Man” opens wide to yawning reviews. Will it hit $15? Not likely.

Box Office Mojo predicts it won’t hit $14, which could herald the end of Vince Vaughn’s leading man who can open a movie era.
