Warm Bodies Consumes US Box Office
Bullet To The Head gets shot at sixth

Stumbling, moaning zombies may not have much of a work ethic – except, perhaps, in regards to finding brains to gnaw on – but zom-rom-com Warm Bodies managed to get audiences out to see it, reinvigorating a slow time at the box office with $19.5 million (and $20 million including midnight showings) to top the charts across the pond.

The new arrival shifted Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters down to second place with $9.2 million, while Silver Linings Playbook bounded up one spot from fourth to third with $8.1 million. Fourth we find horror pic Mama, which made $6.7 million, ahead of Zero Dark Thirty in fifth earning $5.3 million.

While Sylvester Stallone may not be feeling quite the same pain as old chum Arnold Schwarzenegger after Arnie’s The Last Stand flopped badly last week, he won’t be too pleased with the Walter Hill-directed Bullet To The Head, which only managed a sixth-place start and $4.5 million. Their old Expendables mucker Jason Statham was seventh with Parker ($3.2 million), while Django Unchained slipped to eighth with $3 million. Ninth place went to Les Miserables ($2.43 million) and Lincoln crept back into the top 10 at the bottom, taking $2.41 million.

To see zombies chew on Sly’s chart success, head to Box Office Mojo.
