‘Hunger Games’ Makes It Three In A Row At The Top

By Bill Wine

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Multiplex audiences remain hungry for The Hunger Games.

The runaway science fiction epic finished in first place at the box office for the third weekend in a row by earning an estimated $33-million, pushing its cumulative total over the $300-million mark.

One of the weekend’s new mainstream attractions — the American Pie comedy sequel, American Reunion — finished a strong second.  Its debut-weekend total was $21-million.

Titanic, the winner of 11 Oscars in 1997, was re-released in the 3-D format and opened last Wednesday, managing a third-place finish.  It took in $17-million on its first weekend.

And holdovers Wrath of the Titans and Mirror Mirror rounded out the top five with $15-million and $11-million, respectively.

Overall, as has been true of most weekends so far this year, industry-wide totals were above those of a year ago.
