Despite Interstellar’s stellar reviews and impressive opening week, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 did as expected and knocked it back down to earth.
The Hunger Games is a box office magnet. It is commonplace for the franchise and this week was no different as the the newest iteration pulled in over $11.8 million.
Interstellar didn’t do bad by any stretch of the imagination raking in just over$2 million in its 3rd week.
Reliable comedy Let’s Be Cops took a solid third spot while Gone Girl drops outside of the top 3 for the first time since its release.

Also opening is the Jake Gyllenhaal drama Nightcrawler. Jake plays a journalist who becomes a little too embroiled in the world of crime.
Other releases include The Bradley Cooper/Jennifer Lawrence reunion in Serena and Men, Women & Children – a drama about social networking and the internet starring Jennifer Garner & Adam Sandler.
