THE HUNGER GAMES Holds at #1; THE CABIN Gets STOOGED – Weekend Box Office Report (April 13 – April 15, 2012)

After a fourth weekend in a row, the Lionsgate phenomenon The Hunger Games held the #1 spot, taking in another estimated $21.5 million.  The film has accumulated an estimated total of $337.1 million to date, and only dropped 35.1% from last weekend.  This has now fallen under the “repeat viewings successes” category, similar to the performances of the Harry Potter films, the Twilight films, and Avatar (Click here for my review of The Hunger Games).

On Friday, the #2 and the #3 spots were neck and neck, but in the end, Fox’s The Three Stooges came in at #2 with an estimated $17.1 million.  This is good news for Fox, as the production budget was only $30 million, and it’ll most likely cross that by next weekend.  This is a sign, too, that a Stooges sequel is a possibility.

At #3 was the Lionsgate horror-comedy The Cabin in the Woods, which took in an estimated $14.9 million.  This is unfortunate for Lionsgate, as the reviews and word-of-mouth at screenings were incredibly positive.  However, like other films that had strong buzz from fan screenings, Kick-Ass and Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, Lionsgate may have held too many free screenings for fans, causing them to not show up and pay for a ticket when the film released theatrically (Click here for my review of The Cabin in the Woods).

At #4 was the Paramount rerelease Titanic 3D, which fell only 32.7% from last weekend, pulling in another estimated $11.6 million.  This takes the second highest grossing film of all time to an estimated total of $645.2 million, with an additional estimated $44.4 million from the 3D rerelease (Click here for my review of Titanic 3D).

And at #5 was Universal’s comedy sequel American Reunion, which dropped 50.3% from last weekend and took in another estimated $10.7 million.  The film has accumulated an estimated total of $39.9 million, and at this rate, it will probably squeeze a little past its $50 million production budget (Click here for my review of American Reunion).
