    Weekend Box Office: 'Hunger Games' goes back for fourths!

    Like This Thread!
    For the fourth weekend in a row, The Hunger Games was the number one movie earning another $21.5 million! Still dominating the box office and possibly being the top grosser of 2012, The Hunger Games total is now up to $337 million!

    Debuting in second place to a pretty decent number was the Farrelly brothers PG rated The Three Stooges which opened to $17.1 million. With a reported budget of $30 million, it’ll more than likely earn that back.

    Joss Whedon’s long delayed The Cabin in the Woods opened in third place with $14.8 million.

    Coming in fourth was Titanic 3D with $11.6 million and a $44.4 million total.

    And rounding out the top 5 is American Reunion with $10.7 million and a $39.9 million total.

    Also opening this weekend was Lockout which opened in ninth place with $6.2 million.

    After the much publicized ratings battle with the MPAA, the Weinstein Brothers produced documentary Bully now with a PG-13 rating opened in 158 theaters in fifthteenth place with $534,000.

    Dr. Seuss' The Lorax became the second film of 2012 to reach the $200 million mark!

    Out of the top 12 is Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (13th) which finally made it to the $100 million mark, Safe House (17th), and John Carter (18th) which leaves with making $346,000 this weekend and making in total $68.7 million on a reported budget of $250 million.

    Opening next weekend are three new movies first up is The Lucky One (rated PG-13) starring Zac Efron, Taylor Schilling, Jay R. Ferguson, Riley Thomas Stewart, Adam Lefevre, and Blythe Danner.

    You know at this point I do kind of hope The Hunger Games stays on top until The Avengers since really it being over taken by another movie until then just feels... wrong. I mean it being out preformed even in it's 5th week by say Think Like A Man or The Lucky One would be kind of embarrassing. Yeah I know it can't hold onto the top forever but really at least let it be taken out by another big important movie not what seem like more fluff or meh efforts.
    Man now I"m up to 7,000+ posts. Hard to believe it took me 8 something years to get that many. How long will it take me to get another thousand? Guess you're going to have to keep reading what I have to say to find out.... I hope you've been doing that anyway as I feed off the attention.

    The Three Stooges was far, FAR, better than expected. Outside of a little rude (yet hilariously pulled off) humor, it remained faithful to the original shorts, right down to the sound effects and cheap f/x that the originals were known for. I hope it makes enough back to make a sequel because I'd like to see another adventure with the new actors.

    Yeah. Unless The Three Stooges gets a sudden surge in business this weekend (the reviews for that flick have been mostly good ones), Hunger Games will rule the next week or two, and then Tony Stark and his boys will finally take it down.

    It's looking like The Hunger Games will lose it's number one spot come Sunday. Friday numbers indicate that Think Like A Man will be number one this weekend followed by Nicolas Sparks' latest book to movie adaptation The Lucky One....

    1) Think Like A Man- $12.2 million
    2) The Lucky One- $9.1 million
    3) The Hunger Games- $4 million ($346.4 million)
    4) Chimpanzee- $3.5 million
    5) The Cabin in the Woods- $2.4 million ($21.7 million)

    A 2-spot drop, now that's a bit surprising.

    I wonder if this means Kevin Hart officially has "star power" seeing that he was arguably the main draw of "Think Like A Man". Then again, it's only made 12 million, so maybe not.
