HANSEL AND GRETEL Takes Tepid Weekend Box Office with $19M
As reported yesterday by BWW Movies World, this weekend didn't turn out so hot for the domestic box office. All three films that opened this week - HANSEL AND GRETEL, PARKER, and MOVIE 43 - missed their projections.
SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, riding on the back of its Oscar buzz, came in third with $10M, raising its domestic total to $69M. Another Academy Award contender, ZERO DARK THIRTY, came in fourth with $9.8M.
Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez's new film, PARKER, absolutely undershot projections. It took in $7 million and rounded out the top five. FilmDistrict adjusted their prediction for the film on Saturday morning from $10 million to $6m, after PARKER grossed just $2.1 million on Friday night.
