The Hunger Games continued to top both Wrath of the Titans and Mirror Mirror combined on Monday.

‘The Hunger Games’ Passes $250 Million Mark on Monday

on April 03, 2012 by Daniel Garris

The Hunger Games grossed $4.52 million on Monday to lead the daily box office for an eleventh consecutive day. The blockbuster adaptation from Lionsgate fell 70 percent from Sunday and 58 percent from last Monday. Grosses on Monday for most films took a hit from the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship, so Tuesday grosses should rebound especially strong today in general. The Hunger Games topped the $250 million mark yesterday and has now grossed a massive $253.01 million through eleven days of release. That places The Hunger Games 17.5 percent ahead of the pace of 2010's Alice in Wonderland; though daily grosses for The Hunger Games have now fallen behind daily grosses for Alice in Wonderland at the same point in its run.

Warner's Wrath of the Titans placed in second with $2.57 million. The pricey 3D fantasy sequel fell 69 percent from Sunday. Wrath of the Titans has grossed $36.03 million in four days of release (though it should be noted that the film is performing far stronger internationally). Thus far Wrath of the Titans is running a disappointing 49 percent behind the pace of 2010's Clash of the Titans and 6.5 percent behind the pace of 2008's 10,000 B.C. With the help of Holy Week, Wrath of the Titans and the rest of the marketplace in general should hold up well throughout the midweek.

Relativity's Mirror Mirror took third place for the day with $1.53 million. The Tarsem Singh directed family film starring Julia Roberts and Lily Collins fell 68 percent from Sunday. Mirror Mirror has grossed a slightly softer than expected $19.66 million through four days of release. The film is currently running 28 percent behind the pace of Meet the Robinsons, which opened the weekend before Easter back in 2007.

21 Jump Street grossed $1.34 million to claim fourth place. Sony's crowd pleasing R-rated comedy continues to hold up nicely as it was down 66 percent from Sunday and down just 30 percent from last Monday. 21 Jump Street has grossed a stronger than expected $94.22 million in 18 days, leaving it just $5.78 million away from reaching the $100 million domestic milestone.
