Box Office Report: Stooges and Scares Can't Stop 'Hunger Games'

'Cabin in the Woods' and 'The Three Stooges' can't unseat 'Hunger Games.'

"The Hunger Games" was the number one movie at the North American box offices for the fourth consecutive weekend, a movie industry analyst said today.

The movie was estimated to bring in $21.5 million in sales by its studio, Lionsgate, this weekend, said Hollywood.com writer Paul Dergerabedian. It has grossed an estimated $337 million domestically over four weeks.

And it was a "nyuk-nyuk" weekend for the Three Stooges, as a Fox movie about the trio debuted to $17.1 million in sales, according to studio estimates gathered by Hollywood.com. The "much better than expected debut proves these stooges are no dummies," Dergerabedian deadpanned.

"The Cabin In The Woods,:" a horror flick also from Lionsgate, debuted in third place with a $14.9 million take.   Making up the remaining 10 most-popular movies in the United States and Canada, as estimated by the studios and collated by Hollywood.com, were "Titanic 3-D" ($11.6 million), "American Reunion" ($10.6 million), "Mirror Mirror" ($7 million), "Wrath Of The Titans" ($6.9 million), "21 Jump Street" ($6.8 million), "Lockout" (debuting with $6.3 million) and "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax" ($3 million).
