Advance tickets for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 have set the 2014 first day advance ticket sales record for 2014. This information comes from both Fandango (the earlier record was held by Divergent) and MovieTickets.com (record held by Guardians of the Galaxy).  It’s probably still a bit early to project box office numbers, but my professional opinion: expect big money!
