Movie Power Rankings: ‘Catching Fire’ torches the competition

November now belongs to “The Hunger Games.” With “Catching Fire” — the second of four films in the series — the YA adaptation burned the competition at the box office, taking in over $160 million in its opening weekend. It handily beat the 2012 original as well as the previous record-holder for a November opening, 2009’s “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.” And there are still two more movies to go. The odds certainly seem to be in their favor. 

As for the rest of this week’s list…
