Updated on

“Mockingjay -- Part 1,” the latest installment in the “The Hunger Games” film series, faced little fresh competition and easily led the box office for a third straight weekend.

The young adult drama starring Jennifer Lawrence collected $21.6 million in weekend ticket sales in the U.S. and Canada for Lions Gate Entertainment Corp., researcher Rentrak Corp. said yesterday in an e-mailed statement. The 21st Century Fox Inc. horror film “The Pyramid” opened in limited release with sales of $1.35 million to place ninth.
