The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 has remained at the top of the U.S. box office for a second consecutive week.

Mockingjay - Part 1 has taken a further $56 million in its second week of release to hold off the challenge from animation movie Penguins of Madagascar.

In just two weeks the latest instalment in the popular Hunger Games franchise has taken in excess of $480 million and has topped the box office in the U.S. and the UK.

Penguins of Madagascar had to settle for second this week and was the highest new entry inside the top ten. The movie sees the penguins from the popular Madagascar franchise get their own solo movie for the first time.

Big Hero 6 was down a single spot at three, while Interstellar was also down one from three to four this week.

Horrible Bosses 2 was the second and final new entry in the top ten this week, as the comedy sequel opened at five. The movie sees Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis back as Nick, Dale, and Kurt, while Sean Anders takes over the director's chair.

Dumb and Dumber To was down two places this week, while Theory of Everything was up from ten to seven. The biopic about Stephen Hawking starring Eddie Redmayne was the only movie on the up this weekend.

Gone Girl was one of the biggest fallers, as it was down three places from five to eight, while there was no move for Birdman - a potential Oscar favourite - at nine.

St Vincent was the other three place faller on the chart this week, as it dropped from seven to ten.
