Hansel & Gretel Hunt Down US Box Office

Sluggish. That’s the best way to describe this past weekend’s lacklustre showing at the US box office. It didn’t help that there were slim pickings on offer, but in the end Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters emerging victorious at the top of the charts with $19 million.

Horror pic Mama slipped down one place to second, earning $12.8 million, while Silver Linings Playbook maintained its momentum and sat in third with $10 million. That put it ahead of Zero Dark Thirty, which fell from second to fourth, earning $9.8 million. But even that was enough to best one of the other new arrivals, Jason Statham’s latest action offering Parker, which took in $7 million for fifth.

Django Unchained actually went up one place to sixth and $5.5 million, while taking its place in seventh was the abysmally reviewed star-laden comedy anthology Movie 43. That could only muster up $5 million. Gangster Squad was down to eighth with $4.2 million, while Broken City fell to ninth and $4 million. Finally, Les Miserables dropped to 10th place, earning $3.9 million.

To see fairy tale hunters take down Jason Statham in the charts and all the other info, head to Box Office Mojo.
