Chart of the Day: 'Hunger Games' a financial flop?

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" had one of the biggest box-office openings in Hollywood history this weekend—but compared to other big sequels, was it actually a flop?

The second movie in the series cost tens of millions more than the first, but its opening weekend wasn't that much bigger.

When you look at the percentages, it's even more stark. Compared to the first and second movies in the "Twilight" and "Lord of the Rings" franchises, the new "Hunger Games" cost a lot more to make for not as much gain.
