Two more cannon shots were heard around the country this week, as The Hunger Games defeated a pair of widely hyped newcomers to wear the box office crown for the third week in a row.

Neither American Reunion nor Titanic 3D were any match for Katniss and company: the big screen version of Suzanne Collins' novel earned $33.5 million on Friday and Saturday to become the sixth-fastest film to reach $300 in domestic receipts.
