on January 31, 2013 by Shawn Robbins

trek2-manofsteel-ironman3_alt1_.pngThis week's edition of Forum Buzz comes to you with the current update as well as last week's results. The big news for Hunger Games fans is that Catching Fire took the #1 spot for the first time last week, switching spots with Star Trek Into Darkness. To see which highly anticipated sequel came out on top this week, please see our chart below. Spoiler alert: one of them fell out of the top two completely...

Also worth mentioning is that Elysium and The Wolverine cracked the top ten last week. The latter stuck around at #10 for the current tabulations while Elysium was knocked out by the resurgence of Monsters University and Pacific Rim.

Notable exits since our last update include Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (#28) and this weekend's Warm Bodies (#23). Movie 43, Parker and Bullet to the Head have also exited eligibility but none charted in their final weeks.
