411's Box Office Report: Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Claims #1
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.27.2013

Witch Hunters topped the box office this weekend. Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters claimed the #1 spot with $19 million, a modest but decent opening for the pic. The Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton-starring dark action-fantasy opened in 3,372 theaters and averaged $5,635. The film added in a hefty $35.8 million overseas for a $54.8 million worldwide total. The film had a budget of $50 million, which it should have little problem making back considering the overseas expectations for it.

Jessica Chastain's horror turn in Mama dropped a spot to #2 in its second week. The Guillermo Del Toro-produced horror picture brought in $12.9 million, an average second-weekend drop of 55% considering its overperformance last weekend and it's genre. Mama has grossed $48.6 million domestically and $51.3 million worldwide on a budget of just $15 million.

Silver Linings Playbook held on exceptionally well in its second weekend of wide release (and eleventh week overall), staying even at #3 with $10 million. The film was down just 7% from last weekend; it has now grossed $69.5 million domestically and $86.3 million worldwide from a budget of $21 million.

Zero Dark Thirty was down two spots to #4 with $9.8 million. Kathryn Bigelow's military thriller about the hunt for Osama Bin Ladin has now pulled in $69.9 million domestically and $77.6 million worldwide on a $40 million budget.

Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez's Parker opened very soft, kicking off at #5 with $7 million. The action thriller averaged just $3,147 from 2,224 theaters; it is Statham's lowest opening weekend since Crank 2 in 2009 and Lopez's lowest wide release opening since Gigli in 2003. The movie's budget was $30 million.

Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained was up one spot to #6 in its fifth weekend with $5 million. It has now brought in $146.3 million domestically and $257.8 million worldwide with a budget of $100 million.

Movie 43 joined Parker in the disappointment pool, finishing all the way down at #7 with $5 million. The star-filled anthology comedy averaged $2,472 from 2,023. The film had a budget of just $6 million, so it should end up okay.

Gangster Squad fell a hefty four spots to #8 in its third weekend, bringing in $4.2 million. The neo-noir crime drama has grossed a total of $39.6 million domestically and $58.6 million worldwide from a budget of $60 million.

Broken City slipped four spots to #9 in its second weekend with $4 million. The Mark Wahlberg/Russell Crowe crime thriller dropped 52%, a bit high for its genre and opening. It has grossed $15.3 million from a budget of $35 million.

Coming in at #10 was Les Miserables, down two spots from last week. The film brought in $3.9 million; it has a total domestic gross of $137.2 million and a worldwide gross of $312.9 million from a budget of $61 million.

The weekend box office tally was $107.5 million, down 14% from last year's $126.3 million gross that was led by The Grey's $19.7 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.
