With 14.5M, The Hunger Games takes the number 3 spot at the box office of its fifth weekend
It finally happened. The Hunger Games has been ousted, after four consecutive weeks, of the number 1 spot at the American box office. The film took in an estimated of $14.5 million on its fifth week in theaters, a decrease of 31.3% from last weekend, as reported by BoxOfficeMojo.
The Hunger Games sat on top of the box office for 28 consecutive days, until this last Friday (April 20), when the comedy Think Like A Man and the Zac Efron romantic drama, The Lucky One, debuted in America. The domestic box office is now at $356,900,000, ranking #19 in the all-time domestic box office; it’s heading to surpass the $380 million by the end of its run. The film is tracking just behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, which 31 days from its release (just as The Hunger Games is now) had grossed $357,337,355. That film ended with a total gross of $381,011,219.
Worldwide, The Hunger Games have taken in $550,900,000.
