Another weekend another number one spot for Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games. The critically acclaimed adaptation has now been atop the box office for four weeks in a row. Now, let’s be on the real here…I don’t expect the movie to be atop the charts next weekend with Zac Efron’s The Lucky Ones hits theaters (and you know every female with a period will be seeing that one!). Still though, four weeks atop the charts is nothing to sneeze at for a spring film. Games’ made a cool $21.5M at the box office this weekend to maintain its stranglehold on the theaters this weekend.
The ridiculously stupid (oxymoron) The Three Stooges film held down the number two position making $17.1M. Seriously, though, who saw that movie this weekend? Stand up so I can slap you. The three spot belonged to the sci-fi horror cult classic The Cabin in the Woods, which is carrying a 90%+ on Rotten Tomatoes. It made nearly $15M. The fourth and fifth biggest money makers this weekend were Titanic 3D and American Reunion with $12M and $10.7M respectively.
As a side note the Guy Pearce action-thriller Lockout debuted in the #9 spot which is maddeningly disappointing as Guy Pearce is one of Hollywood’s good guys.
