The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has topped the US and Canada box office chart after a slow weekend for North America’s cinemas.
The latest Hunger Games installment took $21.6 million between Friday and Sunday to stay the top draw for a third straight weekend.
Penguins of Madagascar took second place with a second weekend tally of $11.1 million.
Its second weekend takings of $8.6 million were not much to shout about in a weekend described as “boring” by box office analyst Paul Dergarabedian.
The only new entry in this week’s Top 10 was The Pyramid, a horror film about a group of archaeologists exploring a cursed tomb.
The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as code breaker Alan Turing, took in an estimated $402,000 from eight locations.
Reese Witherspoon’s Wild, meanwhile, opened in 21 cinemas on December 3 and made an estimated $630,000 between Friday and Sunday.
