The Hunger Games Reaps $300 Million at Box Office

The Hunger Games broke $300 million at the box office this weekend, laughing all the way to the bank at American Reunion in a distant second place. As for James Cameron‘s Titanic 3-D, The Hunger Games slayed it at the box office, surpassing the Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet film by over $16 million.

With The Hunger Games still reaping huge ticket sales at the box office, the film is currently on target to rake in over $360 million domestically and is currently the highest grossing film of the year. With the win at the weekend box office, The Hunger Games has now topped ticket sales in the U.S. for the third weekend in the row.

The much maligned Wrath of the Titans sequel came in fourth place at $15 million, with Julia Roberts’ Snow White film Mirror Mirror in fifth with $11 million.
