For the fourth weekend in a row, The Hunger Games easily led the domestic box office, holding off three new wide releases from the top spot.

The 1990s were no match for a dystopian future as The Hunger Games held off healthy debuts from an American Pie reunion and a Titanic re-release.

The flick earns more than new releases "Wrath of the Titans" and "Mirror Mirror" combined.

The appetite for "The Hunger Games" was even more voracious than experts predicted.The Lionsgate movie based on the best-selling young-adult novel raked in an estimated $155 million in its opening weekend, according to the studio, giving it the third-best debut in North American box office history.

The "Games" have officially begun!Last night, "The Hunger Games" grossed a truly staggering $19.7 million from midnight showings across the country the highest midnight total ever for a non-sequel, and the seventh highest midnight total ever (behind three "Harry Potters" and three "Twilights"). After only a few hours, it's clear that the film is already a smash, and it's almost certainly headed for a debut well above the $100 million mark.

Relax, you legions of Hunger Gamers. We have a winner. Hollywood didn't screw up the film version of Suzanne Collins' young-adult bestseller about a survival-of-the-fittest reality show that sends home all its teen contestants, save the victor, in body bags.

Sony and MGM's 21 Jump Street lit up the R-rated comedy marketplace, opening to a stellar $35 million at the domestic box office.

Presidents Day weekend proved to be another strong one at the box office. In its second weekend in theaters, Safe House, an action thriller starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds, climbed past last weekends victor The Vow and topped the box office chart.

After last weekend's record-breaking pre-Valentine's Day frame, Hollywood is feeling hopeful about box office prospects during the upcoming holiday weekend, which will include four days of box office receipts.

An old-fashioned, tastefully constrained supernatural thriller, "The Woman in Black" embraces the elements of gothic horror movies with pleasing seriousness: If there's a door handle to rattle or floorboard to creak in the ruined mansion at the heart of the story's trouble, this production pauses for the sight and sound.
