    And now for the latest tribute paid to The Hunger Games: an estimated $68.3 million opening day.

    Here's where the gross stacked up among Hollywood's all-time blockbusters:

    It takes fifth place as both the biggest-ever opening day and single day, in both instances pushing past The Dark Knight.

    The take comes in just under Eclipse's $68.5 million.

    More significantly, it very nearly equals what the original Twilight grossed during its entire opening weekend, a then- and now-impressive $69.6 million.

    The Hunger Games' haul goes down as the biggest-ever opening day for a nonsequel.

    With the Jennifer Lawrence movie so far living up to sky-high expecatations, the question is how much higher can it go yet? 

    Stay tuned for the answer Sunday morning.

    1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, $91.1 million
    2. The Twilight Saga: New Moon, $72.7 million
    3. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1, $71.6 million
    4. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, $68.5 million
