Teen Sci-fi Franchise 'Divergent' Debuts With $56M

By DMO Affiliate
The teen science-fiction franchise "Divergent" debuted with $56 million at the box office, one of the year's biggest openings, but one shy of some expectations. Lionsgate's adaptation of Veronica Roth's best-selling young-adult novels, starring Shailene Woodley, didn't reach the heights of the studio's other teen franchises. "Twilight" opened with $69.6 million in 2008, and "The Hunger Games" debuted with $152.5 million in 2012. A sequel is already planned. Disney's Muppets sequel "Muppets Most Wanted" fared poorly, earning $16.5 million over the weekend.
