According to The Los Angeles Times, pre-release audience surveys imply the movie could debut anywhere between $125 million to $150 million...and that's just the debut!
If the numbers hold to be true, this means the movie will have the highest-grossing three-day weekend ever for a nonsequel, surpassing Alice in Wonderland which earned $116.1 million during its opening weekend two years ago.

That said, it's probably unlikely Jennifer Lawrence's new movie will have the biggest opening weekend ever. That would mean it takes down the eighth Harry Potter film which raked in $169.2 million!
The Hunger Games will likely bring in bigger bucks than Twilight. Here's why: The Hunger Games hits home with all demographics, including 25-year-old guys and younger whereas Twilight appeals very strongly to young women.
