Weekend Box Office: Hunger Games 3-peats, James Cameron earns yacht wax money

By / 04.09.12

Raccoon Banker and the Hunger Games cast eagerly watch the box office returns


It wasn’t the most fascinating or surprising weekend at the box office, so I’ll keep this brief. The Hunger Games landed first place for the third week in a row, earning $33.5 million domestically, crossing $302 million cumulatively and almost $460 million worldwide. All in all, more than enough to invest in a tripod for the next one. Meanwhile, American Reunion was a not-totally-but-still-kinda disappointing $21.5 million for the number two spot, and defying all logic, there were $17 million worth of people willing to spend ten or 15 bucks to see Titanic again. No word on what James Cameron’s cut was, but I’m sure it was enough to buy decorative tote bags for his giant bales of money and new wigs for his prostitutes, not to mention new slum shacks to shield the bald girls who gave their hair for the prostitute wigs from the rain. The prosperity trickles down, you see, that’s economics.
