The Suzanne Collins page-to-screen effort now stands at $337.1 million and achieved a four-peat, the first time a film has done that since James Cameron and Avatar ruled the movie-going public.

The Joss Whedon-penned The Cabin in the Woods, despite critical praise, had to settle for third place with its $14.9 million bow. Speaking of Cameron, his Titanic 3D took the fourth place spot, adding another $11.6 million to its return-to-the-big-screen bank.

Fifth place belonged to the horny guys and girls from American Pie, who saw their American Reunion bank another $10.6 million in its second week of release.
