'The Hunger Games' Dominates In Fourth Week: Weekend Box Office Report

Weekend Box Office Round-upThe Hunger Games continues to dominate the domestic box office betting out two new openers. Now in its fourth week, The Hunger Games holds on to the top spot making the film’s global cumulative a mind blowing $5oo million.

The Three Stooges underperformed, but still claimed the #2 spot.  Despite this film scoring a B- in CinemaScores, it still hasn’t measured up to other major TV adaptations, such as Get Smart ($38.7 million) or Bewitched ($20 million). However, it did beat out The Honeymooners. This is the Farrelly Brothers’ best debut in over a decade since Me, Myself and Irene ($24.2 million) and Shallow Hal ($22.5 million).

The Cabin in the Woods opened in third place with an estimated $14.9 million. In comparison to previous horror movies that Lionsgate has distributed, (like Saw and Hostel), $14.9 million is pretty weak for the company.  The audience, made up of 65% males, scored the film a  C and received a D+ from females.

As an interesting note, both The Cabin In The Woods and The Three Stooges were greenlit by MGM Productions and then passed on to other studios when MGM was rocked with debt.
