Lionsgate’s Hunger Games dominated the domestic box office for the second consecutive weekend, adding another $58.6 million to its gross, which now stands at $248.5 million after just ten days. According to final figures, it nabbed an additional $34.8 million overseas, bringing its worldwide tally to $362.4 million. Warner Bros.’ Wrath of the Titans debuted in second place with $33.5 million domestically, slightly less than the lower end of forecasts; however, it grabbed $78 million overseas to open with a solid $111.5 million. The previous Titans flick, 2010’s Clash of the Titans, also displayed greater box-office strength abroad than it did in North America. (See separate item.)

Sony’s 21 Jump Street was still jumping at the box office, dropping only 26.7 percent in its third week to $14.8 million, while Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax rounded out the top five with $7.8 million.
