Hunger Games Tops UK Box Office For Second Week
Teen movie phenomenon holds onto box office top spot...
Teen blockbuster Jennifer Lawrence as a teenager forced to compete in a televised fight to the death, beat the competition by some margin.
Aardman Animation's The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists! took second place with £2.3m, while Wrath of the Titans opened with £2.2m.
Lionsgate's movie adaptation of the first novel in author Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy made its UK debut last week and grossed the biggest opening box office figures of the year so far with £4.9m, while in the US the film garnered the third highest opening weekend figures ever.
With Easter just around the corner it looks likely that The Hunger Games will hang onto poll position next week, and with two further adaptations no doubt on the way, it could well reach, or even surpass, the dizzy heights achieved by movie phenomenons Twilight and Harry Potter.
