The Hunger Games takes a bite out of the U.S. box office

The movie, which stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, broke box office records last week by becoming the biggest non-sequel film to ever open at number one – and now The Hunger Games has held onto its coveted first place title.

Coming in a distance second was Sam Worthington’s Wrath of the Titans, which had earnings of $34.2 million (£21.3 million), and debuting in third was Julia Roberts’ family fairytale film Mirror Mirror, with takings of $19 million (£11.9 million).

Cop comedy 21 Jump Street ($15 million/£9.4 million) is at four and animated movie Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax ($8 million/£5 million) rounds out the top five.
