SUNDAY, 8TH UPDATE
Lionsgates The Hunger Games continues its amazing run for the third weekend in a row for a new worldwide total past $460M. This gives the box office behemoth a 17-day total through Easter Sunday of $157.1M international and $302.8M domestic.
In the U.S. and Canada, it overwhelmed both box office rivals Paramount/Foxs Titanic 3D and Universals American Reunion. But the pair showed strength overseas.
This weekend, The Hunger Games grossed $33.5M domestic and $25.5M foreign where it has been trying to stave off an onslaught from Warner Bros recent 3D entry Wrath Of The Titans. After a disappointing domestic start, this sequel is dominating overseas: over the holiday weekend it dropped just -43% from its opener with a gross of $43M in 60 markets from 13,540 screens.
The international cume to date is now $152.5M and Warner Bros declared Wrath Of The Titans #1 internationally. It opens in Japan April 21st.
