Lionsgate's Hunger Games has become the first film since Avatar to win four weekends in a row. With an estimated gross of $21.5 million, it easily held off challenges from three newcomers. Its closest rival was Fox's The Three Stooges , which Nevertheless performed far better than industry pundits had forecast. Its estimated $17.1 million debut virtually guarantees that the Farelly brothers will be able to fulfill their reported ambition to produce a series of Stooges slapstick farces that will keep alive the vintage silliness of the originals. Lionsgate -- which until now had been forced to live down the descriptor "struggling" that reporters attached to its name -- placed another film in the top three. Its tongue-in-cheek horror flick The Cabin in the Woods brought in about $14.9 million in ticket sales -- at the high end of analysts' forecasts. A third newcomer, the sci-fi thriller Lockout , was nearly locked out of the top ten, placing ninth with around $6.3 million. Among holdovers, the 3D version of James Cameron's Titanic performed unimpressively in its second weekend, with just $11.6 million.
