The Hunger Games has devoured competition from the Clash Of The Titans sequel to retain the top spot at the U.K. box office.
The futuristic thriller, based on Suzanne Collins' best-selling book, took in $4.8 million (£2.98 million) in its second week, while fantasy blockbuster Wrath of the Titans debuted second in the rundown with $3.5 million (£2.19 million).
Animated movie The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists was third with earnings of $3.5 million (£2.17 million), Jonah Hill's cop comedy 21 Jump Street slipped two spots to fourth place, and new release Streetdance 2 rounded out the top five.
The Hunger Games, starring Jennifer Lawrence as a competitor in a televised battle to the death, is making its mark across the world - it's also the top title in the U.S. and Canada.
The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The actress will no doubt be returning for the long-running FX series.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
