BOX OFFICE: THE HUNGER GAMES #1 For Fourth Weekend In A Row

Becoming the first film since Avatar to stay at #1 at the weekend box office for four consecutive weeks, Lionsgate's adaptation of The Hunger Games easily beat out newcomers The Three Stooges and The Cabin In The Woods.



The Hunger Games is still breaking records four weeks into its theatrical run. The Lionsgate-distributed film, which adapts the highly successful Suzanne Collins novel, has grossed $21.5 million this weekend in its fourth week at the top spot (becoming the first movie since James Cameron's Avatar to do so). It beats out newcomers The Three Stooges ($17.1 million) and fellow Lionsgate film The Cabin In The Woods ($14.9 million).
