LOS ANGELES (AP) – Moviegoers wanted another helping of The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part One ruled the Thanksgiving box office for a second weekend in a row with $56.9 million, according to studio estimates yesterday. The total haul for the latest instalment of the Lionsgate dystopian series starring Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen stands at $225.7 million domestically and $254.4 million internationally.

Penguins of Madagascar opened in second place with a chilly $25.8 million. The animated spin-off centres on the penguin characters from DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar franchise. Penguins fared better overseas, where the film earned an additional $36 million.
