The Hunger Games Bumped to 3rd Place at Weekend Box Office

The Hunger Games was finally dethroned from the number one spot at the box office this weekend, after holding strong for four weeks. According to The Wrap:

Sony Screen Gems’ “Think Like a Man” ended the month-long box office reign of “The Hunger Games” and did it in style, hauling in an estimated $33 million in its debut to easily win the weekend.

Warner Bros.’ Zac Efron movie “The Lucky One” also did better than expected and rang up $22.8 million from 3,155 locations to claim the second spot, ahead of “The Hunger Games,” which finished in third with $14.5 million. Lionsgate’s adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ young adult novel has now grossed more than $356 million at the domestic box office.

With The Hunger Games returning for a one-week run in IMAX theaters starting this Friday, April 27th, we’re thinking that weekend total will likely increase.
