Variety is reporting that Lionsgate is expecting ‘Insurgent’  to gross between $350 to $400 millions worldwide!  Variety sat down with Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer who has high hopes for the franchise.

Feltheimer said the “Divergent” franchise will be making significant contributions to Lionsgate’s profits into 2018. He noted that Roth’s books have sold 20 million copies worldwide, a pace that he asserted is steeper than the trajectory at this point in the franchise than for the books in Suzanne Collins’ “Hunger Games” trilogy.

Feltheimer also suspects that ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ will contribute to ‘Divergent’ and its ongoing success.

‘Insurgent’ hits theaters March 20, 2015

I love reading! I love that books can take you anywhere, make you fall in love, and visit places outside of your reality. “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies,....the man who never reads lives only one.”
