19:54 EDTLGFAs 'Hunger Games' end, Lionsgate places bets on TV, other media, WSJ says
In the wake of the final installment in its "Hunger Games" film property, Lionsgate is making an "array" of bets across its movie and TV businesses as well as new areas like videogames and live events, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing sources. "The Hunger Games," a dystopic science fiction series starring Jennifer Lawrence, has been a "significant factor" in the rise of Lionsgate shares over the past several years, said the publication, and B. Riley analyst Eric Wold told the Journal that "people have been concerned about this 'Hunger Games' cliff for a long time." Lionsgate hopes its combined initiatives will fill the void represented by the conclusion of the series as well as make up for recent flops like "The Last Witch Hunter," the publication explains.

WEEKEND LEADER: Lionsgate's (LGF) "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2" debuted at $101M domestically for the weekend of November 22, missing expectations for $120M-$127M and coming in markedly below the series' $144M first-weekend average.

BOX OFFICE RUNNERS-UP: Sony's (SNE) latest James Bond outing "Spectre" slipped to second place at the U.S. box office with $14.6M, while Fox's (FOX, FOXA) "The Peanuts Movie" took in $12.8M.

11:45 EDTLGF, DISBox Office Battle: 'Hunger Games' finale expected to top box office
Lions Gate's (LGF) "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2," the final movie based on the dystopian young adult novels, is opening this weekend at 4,175 theaters and is expecting a domestic gross in the range of $120M-$127M. Piper Jaffray analyst James Marsh said in a note to investors on November 18 that he expects the film to open domestically in the $130M range, above where it is tracking, due to limited competition and the addition of IMAX (IMAX) screens. Piper maintained its Overweight rating and $45 price target on Lions Gate shares at that time. "The Hunger Games" main competition is "Spectre" and "The Peanuts Movie," both of which are in their third weekend of release. Sony's (SNE) "Spectre," starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, is expected to earn another $15.2M-$16.8M. Fox's (FOX, FOXA) G-rated family film, starring a 3D-animated Charlie Brown, is predicted to earn an additional $12.5M-$13.2M. In other box office news, the Wall Street Journal reported that Disney's (DIS) "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," which hits theaters on December 18, has had record-breaking pre-sales. Fandango said the film has already sold more tickets than any other movie before its release, which is still four weeks away, and IMAX said the movie has "doubled" its prior pre-sales record of about $9M. Other publicly traded companies involved in filmmaking include Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK), Time Warner (TWX), and Viacom (VIA, VIAB).
