The box office experienced a warm, fuzzy feeling the first weekend in February, when the new release, Warm Bodies, found a cozy home at #1 with $20.0 million. The latest zombies-on-the-loose flick found last week’s head honcho, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, trailing far behind at #2 with $9.2 million. In the redundant but optimistic department, Silver Linings Playbook was seen once again playing the field at #3 with $8.1 million. The nightmare continued for the “children” of Mama, once again, at #4 with $6.7 million. Last week’s action flick Parker got kicked to the curb for Sylvester Stallone’s adventure, A Bullet to the Head, which sadly, took a Hollywood-type hit, producing weak box office numbers in its first weekend out to play, landing at #5 with $4.5 million.
So, what have we learned from this week’s Box Office Fivers?
Do zombies really have more fun than fairy tale creatures? Can Hollywood Mama’s ever be trusted?
And what is really in that Silver Linings Playbook (certainly not the secret to Sylvester Stallone’s acting choices)?
From seaside days to starry nights, may your week possess action and adventure, fairy tale memories, snug moments spent with your favorite “undead” and a silver lining for every cloud…
