Unless you've been living under a rock, you know how huge the hype behind this film is and an opening that big really isn't unfathomable. However, earnings of that level usually come from marquee sequels like The Dark Knight.

The projected earnings are almost double that of the first Twilight film, which brought in $69.6 million and The Hunger Games could take the title of biggest March opener of all time away from Alice in Wonderland if it surpasses $116 million.
