411's Box Office Report: Mama Takes #1 at Box Office
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.20.2013

It's a good weekend to be Jessica Chastain, as fresh off her Golden Globes win she has the top two movies in the country this weekend. Mama, the Guillermo Del Toro-produced horror picture starring Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, greatly exceeded expectations by opening at #1 with $28.1 million. The film had been pegged to open in the high teens and is a big hit, especially compared to Del Toro's 2011 horror film Don't Be Afraid of the Dark which only managed $24 million for its full box office run. Mama averaged $10,624 from 2,647 theaters and had a budget of just $15 million, making it quite the hit for Del Toro and company.

Chastain's Zero Dark Thirty fell one spot in its second weekend of wide release, bringing in $17.6 million for the #2 position. Kathryn Bigelow's military thriller about the hunt for Osama Bin Ladin fell just 28%, an impressive number for its genre. The film has now pulled in $55.9 million domestically and $59 million worldwide on a $40 million budget.

Silver Linings Playbook expanded into wide release and rose seven spots to #3 with $11.4 million. The Bradley Cooper/Jennifer Lawrence romantic dramedy has now grossed $55.3 million domestically and $67.9 million worldwide in ten weeks from a budget of $21 million.

Gangster Squad slipped one spot to #4 in its second weekend, bringing in $9.1 million. The neo-noir crime drama dropped 47%, which is a bit high for its genre especially considering the relatively low gross of the opening weekend. The film, which stars Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling and Sean Penn, has grossed a total of $32.2 million domestically and $41.3 million worldwide from a budget of $60 million.

Broken City opened disappointingly at #5 with $9 million. The Mark Wahlberg/Russell Crowe crime thriller was pegged for somewhere in the mid-to-low teens but couldn't even muster that much; it averaged just $3,435 from 2,620 theaters. Its budget was $35 million.

A Haunted House fell four spots to #6 in its second weekend with $8.3 million. The Paranormal Activity spoof, which stars Marlon Wayans, had a drop of 54% which is not bad for a parody film. The film has grossed a total of $30 million from a budget of just $2.5 million.

Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained dropped three spots to #7 in its fourth weekend with $8.2 million. It has now brought in $138.4 million domestically and $188.3 million worldwide with a budget of $100 million.

Coming in at #8 was Les Miserables, down three spots from last week. The film brought in $7.8 million; it has a total domestic gross of $130.4 million and a worldwide gross of $245.5 million from a budget of $61 million.

Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was also down three spots, to #9 in its sixth week. The fantasy epic brought in $6.4 million for the weekend to bring its domestic gross to $287.4 million and its worldwide gross to $895.4 million. It sits at #6 among 2012 films in domestic box office numbers and #4 in worldwide gross.

Finally, Arnold Schwarzenegger's The Last Stand bombed in its opening weekend. The Jee-woon Kim-directed action flick pulled in just $6.3 million, averaging $2,163 from 2,913 theaters. It is the lowest opening weekend for Schwarzenegger since Raw Deal brought in $5.4 million in June of 1986. The film's budget was $30 million.

The weekend box office tally was $139.7 million, up 5% from last year's $133.4 million gross that was led by Underworld Awakenings's $25.3 million opening.

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.
