Warm Bodies Opens to Number One at the Box Office

Warm Bodies, the zombie love tale, opened at number one at the box office this weekend.  The film, starring Nicholas Hoult and Theresa Palmer, grossed an estimated $19.5 million, once again driving home that this is a solid winter period for genre fare.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, last weeks number one flick, jumped to number two, grossing an extra $9.1 million bringing that films total to $34.4 million.

And Mama is still doing pretty well for itself, hanging around the top five, raking in an extra $6.7 million.  That films cumulative gross is now $58.2 million.  

Out of the crop of winter releases, the only one that took a hard hit after its debut was Texas Chainsaw 3D.  Yes, it opened at number one, but it’s drop-off rate was severe.  It plummeted out of the top ten rather quickly and, to date, has grossed $34 million.
