Fight On, Katniss

10407696386_e0f3d4cb74_bb-200x200The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part One stayed atop the charts for a third weekend, earning $21.6 million to stay well ahead of its closest competitor The Penguins of Madagascar, which finished second with $11.1 million.

(This weekend was made extremely uncompetitive by Fox’ decision to give its new horror movie The Pyramid a smallish release with minimal marketing, resulting in a $1.35 million gross and a ninth-place opening. Ouch.)

Two films that did really well with their own limited openings, however, were the Oscar contenders Wild and The Imitation Game; the former made $630,000 on 21 screens, while the latter pulled in $402,000 on just eight. So that’s nice for everybody.
