After The Hunger Games surprised us all by claiming the third highest opening in box office history last weekend, there was little doubt that it would stay on top for a second frame. The runaway hit earned another $18.9 million on Friday, bringing its domestic total up to an amazing $208.8 million in eight days and promising a $250 million domestic gross by Sunday. The Hunger Games kept all of its 4,137 locations this weekend, but lost most of its IMAX screens to Wrath of the Titans. The sequel to 2010’s Clash of the Titans remake (you remember: “Release the Kraken!”) took in $12.4 million on Friday – less than half of the $26 million its predecessor earned on its first full day in theatres. Wrath should top $33 million by Sunday; not quite the $61.2 million of Clash but about what Warner Brothers was expecting. Finally, Mirror, Mirror opened in 3,603 locations to $5.9 million on Friday. The first of 2012’s ‘Snow White’ movies, the family-oriented film is expected to claim $20 million by the end of its debut weekend.   Details and analysis tomorrow.

Title Friday Total
1 The Hunger Games $18,900,000 $208.8
2 Wrath of the Titans $12,400,000 $12.4
3 Mirror, Mirror $5,900,000 $5.9
4 21 Jump Street $4,700,000 $82.7
5 The Lorax $2,000,000 $183.5
