411's Box Office Report: Warm Bodies Lurches to #1
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.03.2013





Zombie love ruled the box office this weekend. Warm Bodies, Jonathan Levine's zombie romantic comedy, took #1 for the weekend with $20 million. That's at the high end of what studio and industry expectations were for the film, which averaged $6,482 from 3,009 theaters. The film had a budget of $30 million.

Down a spot to #2 in its second week was Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. The Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton-starring dark action-fantasy brought in $9.2 million for a fairly average 53% drop from its opening weekend. The film has grossed a total of $34.5 million domestically and $96.7 million worldwide from a budget of $50 million.

Silver Linings Playbook rose a spot in its twelfth week, coming in at #3 with $8.1 million. The film was down a mere 14% from last weekend; it has now grossed $80.4 million domestically and $100.1 million worldwide from a budget of $21 million. It is David O. Russell's second-highest grossing film domestically, behind only The Fighter's $93.6 million.

Jessica Chastain's horror film Mama was down two spot to #4 in its third week. The Guillermo Del Toro-produced horror picture brought in $6.7 million; it has now grossed $58.3 million domestically and $64.1 million worldwide on a budget of just $15 million.

Zero Dark Thirty was down one spot to #5 with $5.3 million. Kathryn Bigelow's military thriller about the hunt for Osama Bin Ladin has now pulled in $77.8 million domestically and $90.8 million worldwide on a $40 million budget.

Sylvester Stallone's Bullet to the Head was DOA, opening at #6 with $4.5 million. The action flick, which co-stars Jason Momoa, averaged just $1,872 from 2,404 theaters and failed to beat even Arnold Schwarzenegger's The Last Stand which itself bombed a couple weekends ago. The film had a budget of $55 million.

Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez's Parker was down two spots to #7 in its second week with $3.2 million. The action thriller fell 54% in its second weekend, about average for an action film; it has now pulled in $12.4 million on a budget of $30 million.

Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained was down two rungs to #8 in its sixth weekend with $3 million. It has now brought in $151 million domestically and $262.5 million worldwide with a budget of $100 million.

Les Miserables, was up one spot from last week, finishing at #9 with $2.4 million. The musical film has a total domestic gross of $141.5 million and a worldwide gross of $339.9 million from a budget of $61 million.

Lincoln also rose a spot, re-entering the top ten at #10 with $2.4 million. The Oscar-nominated biopic has a domestic total of $170.8 million and a worldwide total of $185.3 million from a budget of $65 million.

The weekend box office tally was $86.3 million, down a hefty 25% from last year's $115.7 million gross that was led by Chronicle's $22 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.
