"Divergent" broke the curse of recent young adult (YA) adaptations bombing at theaters over the weekend.

The film made $56 million opening weekend. While that's not as much as the $65 million analysts were originally predicting, it's a good start for a film based on a best-selling book series.

The last five attempts after 2012's "The Hunger Games" all tanked at theaters.

Take a look at the opening weekends for the first films in every potential YA series below. "Divergent" comes in fourth behind "The Hunger Games" ($152.5 million), "Harry Potter" ($90.3 million), and "Twilight" ($69.6 million).

The Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment picture has two sequels in the works.

The next film, "Insurgent" is planned for a March 2015 release. "Allegiant" is set to debut the year after.
