The film finale of “The Hunger Games,” one of Hollywood’s most valuable franchises, had the smallest debut of any in the Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. series.

“Mockingjay - Part 2,” the fourth movie based on the Suzanne Collins young-adult book trilogy, collected $101 million in U.S. and Canadian ticket sales, Rentrak Corp. said Sunday in a statement. That was far short of expectations, including the $120 million estimate of Boxoffice.com.
