(CBS News) "The Hunger Games" took in $214 million globally in its opening weekend, but the blockbuster wasn't the only film to find box office success.

The controversial abortion drama "October Baby" grossed $1.7 million in its debut on 390 screens, according to the Los Angeles Times. The tally was enough for the film to crack the top 10 highest-grossing films of the weekend.

"October Baby" is about Hannah (Rachel Hendrix), a college freshman who learns she was adopted after she survived a failed late-term abortion. She then embarks on a road trip with several friends to track down her birth mother.

The film's overall gross now totals $1.9 million, the Times notes, because it had a limited release in Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee last fall.
