The Divergent movie has grossed $56 million it’s opening weekend. That means that a brand new franchise has been created. After the failures of The Mortal Instruments, Vampire Academy and Beautiful Creatures, Divergent has proven to be victorious.
The Wrap is reporting:
“Divergent,” the big-screen adaptation of Veronica Roth’s best-selling, young-adult adventure novels, conquered the domestic box office with a sizzling $56 million first weekend.
Nearly 60 percent of its audience was female, and about half were under the age of 25. They liked it more than the critics — it’s at 40 percent “fresh” on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes — and gave it an “A” CinemaScore.
Great job Divergent. I loveed the movie and can;t wait to see what they do with Insurgent.
