Box Office: 'Hunger Games' is tops for third consecutive weekend [Video]

April 9, 2012 | 12:15 pm

The Hunger Games was the No 1 film at the box office for the third consecutive weekend
It's been three weeks since "The Hunger Games" hit theaters, but American moviegoers have yet to tire of the Suzanne Collins adaptation.

For the third consecutive weekend, the fantasy epic topped the box office, raking in an additional $33.5 million. That means the film has now surpassed the $300-million milestone in the U.S. and Canada alone.

The success of "The Hunger Games" negatively impacted "American Reunion" and "Titanic 3-D," which debuted over the weekend. The fourth installment in the raunchy comedy franchise, "Reunion" sold only about $21 million in tickets, while the 3-D version of James Cameron's classic took in a so-so $17 million.

So are audiences totally over '90s reboots? Check out this week's box office video report for more.
