1. The Hunger Games (Lionsgate): $33.5 million in 4,137 theaters [Week 3]
Nostalgia for the 1990s couldn't hold Katniss and the rest of the tributes back. For the third straight week The Hunger Games has dominated the box office, bringing in $12 million more than American Reunion, and $15 million more than Titanic 3D. The movie has grossed over $400 million globally, and we're only at week 3. Traditionally a movie like this would be released later in the year, usually during the summer. Lionsgate hit a home run by releasing its surefire box-office crusher in the middle of the slow post-Oscar stretch, instead of putting it up against other big summer franchises like Spider-man or The Avengers. This money train isn't coming to station anytime soon.
2. American Reunion (Universal): $21.5 million in 3,192 theaters
Sandwiched in between two movies about love and (a whole bunch of) death there's American Reunion, a movie about a bunch of guys who threw a party ten years ago. Familiar jokes are usually draws at the box office, just ask the guys from The Hangover 2. This is no exception. While you're watching, try and guess which character is now a waiter at a sushi restaurant.
