As expected and predicted (by yours truly, the world's least accurate box office prognosticator), The Hunger Games won the weekend box office for a third weekend in a row, adding $33.5 million to its massive haul, which is fastly approaching $400 million. Can this week's new releases finally take down the year's first true blockbuster? We'll discuss that later in the week, but first we want to know what you thought of the latest crop of new releases like American Reunion and Titanic 3D.
The American Pie cast reuniting on the big screen turned out to be something people were itching to see, as the latest Pie sequel finished second with $21.5 million. Meanwhile, James Cameron's Titanic 3D conversion may be the very best of 3D conversion to date, but its long running time has been blamed for its $17.4 million third-place opening at the box office. Will it be enough to convince James Cameron to re-release some of his other films in 3D? We'd personally like to see Terminator 2 in 3D, if only to re-watch that bad boy on the big screen again. Guess we'll see how the film does in the coming days and weeks.
As far as the critics go, they loved Titanic 3D, awarding it an 87% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. They weren't as kind to American Reunion, though, which scraped by with a 43% Rotten rating, perhaps signifying the end of this franchise on the big screen. Maybe they'll reunite again in their 60s and 70s, and we'll see just how inventive they can get with those sex jokes.
But now that the critics have had their say, it's your turn. Sound off below and let us know what you thought of this week's new releases.
