Despite the entrance of two competitive titles to the marketplace over Easter Weekend, box office phenomenon The Hunger Games had little difficulty taking the top spot for the third-straight frame. American Reunion opened in second place, though its debut doesn’t compare favorably to earlier series entries, while Titanic 3D wound up on the low-end among 3D re-releases.
American Reunion took second place with $21.5 million from 3,192 locations. That’s much lower than the opening weekend for American Pie 2 ($45.1 million) and American Wedding ($33.4 million).
