Thoughts & Notes:

-The Hunger Games is in first for the fourth straight week, and has made an insane $531 million worldwide

-The 3D re-release of Titanic has not exactly set the domestic box office on fire ($44mil) but it has made nearly $200mil worldwide, and just opened to $58mil in China, which is the biggest opening in that area all time for Fox.

-Mirror Mirror has shown some staying power in recent weeks with % drops in the 30's.

-Lockout is one of the first times actor Guy Pearce has been an action lead, given the 9th place debut it may be his last. 

A Look Ahead:

Next week brings the release of two romantic movies, the Nicholas Spark adaptation The Lucky One, and the comedy Think Like a Man. The last Sparks adaptation was The last Song, which went on to gross $89mil worldwide. The Lucky One could contend for first place, but I would not be to surprised to see The Hunger Games win out again.
