‘The Hunger Games’ wins again at box office, fourth week in a row

“The Hunger Games” became the first film since “Avatar” to spend four consecutive weeks at the top spot on the domestic box office list.

“X-Men: First Class” star Jennifer Lawrence shines in the adaptation of the Suzanne Collins novel which has now grossed $337.1 million in the US and $532.1 worldwide. The Liongate film earned $21.5 million beating out the “Three Stooges” (17.1 million) and the Joss Whedon (“The Avengers”) horror film “Cabin in the Woods”, which finished third.

On the 100th year anniversary of the Titanic sinking, the James Cameron film “Titanic 3D” made some news with a massive showing in China.

The film grossed $11.6 million domestically, but earned a record-breaking $58 million in China. Cameron’s re-release of the film in 3-D has earned an amazing $190 million worldwide in under two weeks.

The bust of the week was the other new film “Lockout”, which stars Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace (“Taken”), opening with $6.3 million, landing the film in 9th place.
