MTV: Box Office Report

"The Hunger Games" is the first movie since "Avatar" to top the box office for four weekends in a row. The adaptation of the popular young adult novel fended off competition from the Farrelly brothers' "The Three Stooges," the positively reviewed "Cabin in the Woods" and sci-fi indie "Lockout" over the weekend, collecting another $21.5 million in North American theaters for an estimated domestic gross of $337.1 million.
