The Hunger Games continued its stranglehold on the daily box office with a first place take of $3.29 million on Tuesday. The blockbuster adaptation from Lionsgate has now led the daily box office for 19 consecutive days. The Hunger Games fell 21 percent from Monday's inflated post-Easter performance and 38 percent from last Tuesday. The 19-day gross for The Hunger Games stands at a massive $309.89 million, as the film continues to run 14 percent ahead of the pace of 2010's Alice in Wonderland. With none of this weekend's three new wide releases looking to light the box office on fire, The Hunger Games is extremely likely to remain in first place for a fourth straight frame.
Universal's American Reunion held steady in second with $2.25 million. The fourth installment of the comedy franchise fell just 1 percent from Monday, a sure sign that the film's Monday performance was less inflated than those of other films in the marketplace. American Reunion has grossed $26.05 million through five days of release. That places the film 21 percent ahead of the pace of last year's Scream 4.
Titanic 3D grossed $1.86 million to remain in third. The 3D re-issue being handled domestically by Paramount was down 16 percent from Monday, which represented an average daily hold among wide releases yesterday. Titanic 3D has grossed $29.70 million through its first week of domestic release, placing it 1 percent ahead of the pace of 2010's The Last Song. The all-time unadjusted domestic gross for Titanic currently stands at $630.49 million.
Titanic 3D remains strong internationally, as the film had an exceptional $11.6 million opening day start in China on Tuesday. Titanic 3D is being handled internationally by Fox.
