Joining current box office king "The Hunger Games" this weekend are popcorn-sellers "Wrath of the Titans" (VFX 3-D sequel) and family fairy tale "Mirror Mirror." The niche gems are hockey comedy "Goon," Norway's sexy coming-of-age comedy "Turn Me On, Dammit!" and the much-publicized (The Weinsteins vs. MPAA ratings board) unrated documentary "Bully." To be honest, we may just go see "The Hunger Games" again.
