LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" claimed the top spot at the box office for the third weekend in a row with an estimated $21.6 million.

The penultimate chapter in the massively successful franchise has now earned $257.7 million domestically. "Mockingjay - Part 1" is still about $78 million shy of where the previous installment, "Catching Fire," was in its third weekend just last year.

Post-Thanksgiving is generally one of the year's slowest box office weekends, with no new, wide releases.

In the specialty box office world, awards hopeful "Wild," starring Reese Witherspoon, opened in 21 theaters Wednesday, earning an estimated $630,000 over the three-day.

The R-rated horror pic "The Pyramid" debuted in 589 theaters to a less impressive $1.35 million.
