LOS ANGELES - Film fans are still forking over for "The Hunger Games," which has taken in $33.5 million to lead the box office for a third-straight weekend.
According to studio estimates Sunday, "The Hunger Games" raised its domestic total to $302.8 million. It easily out-earned two returning favorites, the "American Pie sequel "American Reunion" and a 3-D version of the blockbuster "Titanic."
Both newcomers opened solidly, though. "American Reunion" pulled in $21.5 million, the lowest haul since the 1999 original but still a decent return for a comedy franchise whose last chapter came nine years ago.
"Titanic" in 3-D reeled in $17.4 million over the weekend, raising its domestic take to $25.7 million since opening Wednesday. That lifts the lifetime domestic gross of James Cameron's mega-hit to $626.5 million.
