LONDON, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Jennifer Lawrence could use a little good news right now.

The Guinness World Records unveiled Thursday the actress has set the record for the highest-grossing action movie heroine for her role at Katniss Everdeen in the first two movies in The Hunger Games franchise.

The films, based on the first two books in the series by Suzanne Collins, grossed more than $1.52 billion worldwide.

The second film in the franchise, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, also set the record for highest-grossing post-apocalypse movie after earning $420 million in the United States and $854 million internationally.

The 2015 Guinness World Records book will be launched Sept. 11.
