The Hunger Games still on top at the US box office

Breaks the $400 million mark worldwide

The Hunger Games enjoyed a third weekend on top of the US box office, with a healthy haul of $33.5m ensuring it held off competition from American Pie: Reunion and the re-released Titanic 3D.

That saw Gary Ross’s film break the $300m mark in the domestic market, with worldwide takings now past $400m. Not a bad result by anyone’s standards...

American Reunion tapped into the nostalgia market, taking $21.5m on its opening weekend, while Titanic 3D was a similar throwback success with $17.3m in third.

Wrath Of The Titans put on $15m in fourth place, with Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror continuing to underwhelm in fifth. An $11m weekend for the fairy tale flick will be some way short of what Relativity had hoped for...

21 Jump Street sat in sixth place on $10.2m, with The Lorax taking around half that in seventh. The final three places saw a fairly serious drop-off, with Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, John Carter and Safe House all bringing in less than a million apiece.

Next week sees The Hunger Games challenged by The Cabin In The Woods, Lockout and (ahem) The Three Stooges. Will the odds remain in its favour? We’d imagine they probably will...
