Box Office numbers: 'The Hunger Games' slays 'American Reunion'

hunger-games-cinna-katniss.jpgSorry Tara Reid and Jason Biggs, but it turns out your "American Pie" redux, "American Reunion," didn't have what it takes to stop the runaway success of "The Hunger Games" in its third weekend in theaters, according to Box Office Mojo.

The Jennifer Lawrence fronted movie adaptation of Suzanne Collins' wildly popular young adult novel snagged $13 million in Friday ticket sales. Good news for Lionsgate -- the studio already has two sequels planned.

"American Reunion," though, didn't fare too horribly. With $9.2 million, the movie rang up enough sales to top James Cameron's own retread, "Titanic 3-D," which made just $7.1 million.

Rounding out the top five: "Wrath of the Titans" ($5.4 million) and Julia Roberts' "Mirror Mirror" ($4.6 million).
