Apparently The Hunger Games sounded pretty appetizing to Thanksgiving moviegoers, as the final installment of the franchise landed again atop the holiday weekend's box office with a tidy $75.8 million, reports USA Today. Mockingjay—Part 2 has now collected $440.7 million in two weeks of release, and this week held off debuts from Pixar's The Good Dinosaur ($55.6 million) and Rocky Balboa sequel Creed ($42.6 million). Spectre slipped to fourth with $18.2 million, while The Peanuts Movie was fifth with $13.6 million. The week's disaster was Victor Frankenstein, which tanked with $3.4 million after getting ripped by critics. (Read more Hunger Games stories.)
