The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is the number one movie of 2014.

Mockingjay was the top-grossing movie of 2014. Thanks to over $333 million in box office sales, The Hunger Games Mockingjay – Part 1 has beat Guardians of the Galaxy to become the highest grossing movie of 2014.

From Deadline:

This is the first time in box office history two films in a franchise ranked as the No. 1 titles at the domestic box office for two years in a row — no other Harry Potter, Twilight or Lord Of The Rings has ever done so. Not to mention, it’s the first time a studio has had back-to-back annual No. 1 titles in decades (since box office charts began publishing in 1982, there haven’t been any studios logging back-to-back annual No. 1 hits). Also, it’s an anomaly that the No. 1-grossing film two years in a row features a female lead.

It is nice to point out that for two years in a row, the number one grossing film features a female lead. Beating all stereotypes and suggestions that women cannot be leading actors on feature films.
