The Divergent Series: Insurgent opened nearly on par with its predecessor, while The Gunman and Do You Believe? each started off with less than $2 million on Friday.Insurgent opened to an estimated $21.3 million, which is slightly lower than Divergent's $22.8 million on the exact same day last year. When it comes to sequels, dropping a bit from one installment to the next is actually above-average. Still, if there is going to be a bump, it usually takes place between the first and second in...
