It looks like The Hunger Games will be named the victor yet again on this fine Easter weekend, as the film brought in an estimated $12.9 million on Friday for a potential weekend haul of around $40 million.  The film has now crossed the $400 million mark worldwide against a budget of around $80 million, solidifying its status as a bona fide hit.  Lionsgate is working fast to get the sequel, Catching Fire, before cameras this fall (which Gary Ross may or may not be directing).  Elsewhere in the box office landscape, American Reunion opened to $9.2 million for a weekend total around $22 million, and Paramount’s Titanic 3D took in $7.1 million on Friday.  The re-release opened on Wednesday, so its cumulative is at $15.5 million and should fall short of the projected $30 million weekend, though James Cameron‘s original had famously strong legs in its initial run, so don’t count the disaster love story out just yet.  Additionally, 21 Jump Street has reason to celebrate as the ridiculously funny film has now hit $100 million cumulatively.  Check back tomorrow for details and analysis.

Title Friday Total
1 The Hunger Games $12,900,000 $282,239,000
2 American Reunion $9,200,000 $9,200,000
