“The Hunger Games” Remains Atop The Box Office
LOS ANGELES (AP) – “The Hunger Games” is still the first item on the menu for movie fans. The blockbuster took in $61.1 million to remain the No. 1 film in its second weekend. Starring Jennifer Lawrence as a teen force to compete in a televised death match, “The Hunger Games” lifted its domestic total to $251 million after just 10 days.
Studio estimates Sunday put “The Hunger Games” well ahead of Sam Worthington’s action sequel “Wrath of the Titans,” which opened in second-place with $34.2 million. That’s far below the $61.2 million opening of its predecessor, “Clash of the Titans,” two years ago.
Julia Roberts’ comic “Snow White” reinvention “Mirror Mirror” debuted at No. 3 with $19 million. Roberts plays the wicked queen opposite Lily Collins as Snow White.
