Jennifer Lawrence / Liam Hemsworth's THE HUNGER GAMES Box Office: $250 Million/10 Days

At no. 2 in the U.S. and Canada, Wrath of the Titans grossed $34.2 million (vs. $78 million internationally in 60 territories) at 3,545 theaters this weekend, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Domestically, Clash of the Titans opened with $61.23 million two years ago. Both movies star Avatar's Sam Worthington.

Directed by Battle Los Angeles / the upcoming Ninja Turtles' Jonathan Liebesman, Wrath of the Titans also features Schindler's List / Kinsey's Liam Neeson, The English Patient / Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2's Ralph Fiennes, Carlos' Édgar Ramírez, War Horse / Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time's Toby Kebbell, Devil You Know / Johnny English Reborn's Rosamund Pike, Love Actually's Bill Nighy, Danny Huston, John Bell, Spencer Wilding, and Lily James.

At no. 3 was new release Mirror Mirror, the Snow White tale directed by Immortals / The Cell / The Fall's Tarsem Singh, and starring Oscar winner Julia Roberts (reportedly to be seen next in August: Osage County and The Normal Heart), Lily Collins (The Blind Side, Taylor Lautner's leading lady in Abduction), and Armie Hammer (The Social Network, Leonardo DiCaprio's love interest in J. Edgar).

At 3,603 theaters, the Relativity Media release was expected to collect a little over $20 million after scoring an estimated $5.88 million on Friday. It turns out that Mirror Mirror took in only $19 million. The comedy-fantasy reportedly cost $85 million, though earlier reports had the film pegged at $60 million. Relativity claims that after rebates, foreign pre-sales, and all, it has only $30 million invested on Mirror Mirror.

As of last weekend, Mirror Mirror had earned nearly $12 million internationally.

Note that Singh's version of the Snow White fairy tale has little in common with Disney's animated feature Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and just about nothing in common with Rupert Sanders' Gothic Snow White and the Huntsman, which stars Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, and Chris Hemsworth. Snow White and the Huntsman opens June 1. [Watch the Snow White and the Huntsman HD trailer.]

Rounding out the top five in North America this weekend were Channing Tatum / Jonah Hill's action-comedy 21 Jump Street with $15 million (down 27 percent), and the animated feature Dr Seuss' The Lorax with $8 million (down 39 percent).

And rounding out the top twelve were Andrew Stanton / Taylor Kitsch's John Carter with $2 million (down 60 percent), Ewan McGregor / Emily Blunt's Salmon Fishing in Yemen with $1.27 million (+81 percent after the addition of 359 locations), the flag-waving Act of Valor with $1 million (down 51 percent), and the widely panned Eddie Murphy comedy A Thousand Words with $915k (-53 percent).

Plus Dwayne Johnson / Josh Hutcherson / Vanessa Hudgens' Journey 2: The Mysterious Island with $835k (-39 percent), the wild-party comedy Project X with $825k (-57 percent), and the anti-abortion Christian drama October Baby with $779k (-54 percent).

Bear in mind that there should be some switching around when final box office figures are released on Monday.
