Despite three new wide releases this weekend, The Hunger Games is back at the top of the box office for the fourth (and not necessarily final) Friday in a row, adding another $6.5 million to its terrific $322 million domestic total. The Three Stooges came in second with a $5.6 million opening day, which may be just enough to relaunch the franchise if the movie has legs. The Cabin in the Woods trailed in third, premiering to $5.5 million. That’s not a great total for a movie we love so much, but it could be much worse. Look no further than Lockout, which landed outside the top five to a paltry $2.2 million, beat by last week’s offerings American Reunion and Titanic 3D. Look for details and analysis on the full weekend tomorrow.
