by at . Comments

Fans of The Hunger Games continue to feed the frenzy as the film scored its second straight victory at the weekend box office. The Suzanne Collins page-to-screen effort added another $61.1 million in its second week of release. The flick broke all kinds of records last week with its $155 million debut. Even with three new films opening this weekend -- Wrath of the Titans, Mirror Mirror and Goon -- the story of Katniss and her adventures made almost twice as much as its nearest competitor.
