Hunger Games devours competition at US Box Office

Action movie Hunger Games followed its last weeks record-breaking debut of $152 million with a record-breaking second week release, making $61.1 million in the US box office and beating two major Hollywood new releases: Wrath of The Titans and Mirror Mirror.

In spite of the 60% drop from last weekend, The Hunger Games had the seventh-highest second weekend ever, behind movies such as Avatar and Spider-Man.

3-D fantasy Wrath of Titans, starring Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson and Ralph Feiness, settled in the second spot with a disappointing $34 million. The film, which was hammered by critics, did better in the international market, opening with $78 millions in 60 territories.

The third spot was claimed by Mirror Mirror, a comedic take on the classic fairy tale of Snow White, which is played by Lily Collins. Also starring Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer, the film earned $19 million.

The comedic film version of the 80s TV drama, 21 Jump Street, continued to impress and lands in the fourth spot with $15 million, followed by Dr. Seuss The Lorax, which added $8 million to its coffers, reaching a total of $189.6 since its release.

The Weinstein Companys documentary Bully, which was released unrated had an impressive opening, taking $115,000 at just five cinemas in New York and Los Angeles.
