MUMBAI: The Jennifer Lawrence starrer The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has set a new record after topping the weekend movie charts, setting the US and Canadian record for November ticket sales and hauling in a huge $ 307.7 million around the world. Catching Fire collected an estimated $ 161.1 million from Thursday night through Sunday in the United States and Canada, a first for the month of November.

Playing in 65 markets around the world, the sequel to the hit The Hunger Games also grabbed $ 146.6 million in foreign sales through Sunday, reports distributor Lions Gate Entertainment.

Fans of the franchise poured in large numbers to watch Jennifer Lawrence portray the heroine Katniss Everdeen, of Suzanne Collins' young adult series, the skilled archer who becomes a symbol of hope for the oppressed citizen of the fictional country of Panem.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins with Katniss returning home after winning the 74th Hunger Games along with Peeta. However, it’s not over for them as the devious Capitol prepares for the 75th Annual Hunger Games - The Quarter Quell. As the victors get ready to participate in the Capitol’s latest shenanigans, elsewhere in the districts a rebellion is brewing - the inhabitants are growing more agitated everyday with the absolute tyranny of the Capitol.

The first film of the series The Hunger Games earned $ 691.2 million worldwide in 2012.

After the critical success worldwide, the movie is all set to release in India on 6 December, 2013 in more than 600 screens nationwide in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
