Box Office: 'Hunger Games' dominates again; Roberts flops [Video]

April 2, 2012 |  3:14 pm

The Hunger Games was the No 1 film at the box office yet again
"The Hunger Games" was the dominant force at the box office for the second consecutive weekend, blowing by the quarter-billion-dollar mark after just 10 days in release.

The film about teens battling one another for survival did so well that two new films suffered: the 3-D sequel "Wrath of the Titans" and the Snow White adaptation "Mirror Mirror." The follow-up to 2010's "Clash of the Titans" collected $34.2 million, while the modern spin on the fairy tale only grossed $19 million.

The latter film was another box office dud for Julia Roberts, who plays the evil Queen in "Mirror Mirror." After appearing in a string of flops, can the actress retain her A-list status? Check out this week's box office video report for more.
