Weekend Box Office — ‘The Hunger Games’ Eats the Competition Whole


You could say ‘The Hunger Games’ did well in its debut, but that would be a vast understatement — with $155 million in revenues, the film adaptation of the best-selling novel left the other movies in the dust and moved easily to the top of the charts this weekend.

Last week’s champ, ’21 Jump Street,’ brought in $21.3 million for a distant second, followed by ‘Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax,’ which sold $13.1 million in tickets.

Disney’s ‘John Carter’ and the Navy SEAL-starring ‘Act of Valor’ rounded out the top five, with $5 million and $2 million in receipts, respectively.
