$25.1 Million for ‘Warm Bodies’ in First Week

on February 08, 2013 by Daniel Garris

Warm Bodies rounded out its first week in theatres with a first place take of $1.02 million on Thursday. The PG-13 zombie comedy from Lionsgate and Summit fell 4 percent from Wednesday. Warm Bodies was the week's top film with a seven-day start of $25.13 million. That was in line with pre-release expectations and was essentially on par with the $25.16 million seven-day take of The Woman in Black at this time last year.

The Weinstein Company's Silver Linings Playbook held steady in second place with $0.76 million. The Best Picture nominee was down 4 percent from Wednesday and down only 10 percent from last Thursday, as the film continues to display tremendous holding power. Silver Linings Playbook placed in third for the week with $10.83 million. That was down just 15 percent from the previous frame and brings the film's domestic total to $83.09 million.

Paramount's Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters grossed $0.73 million to remain in third. The 3D action horror film starring Jeremy Renner fell 5 percent from Wednesday and 40 percent from last Thursday. Hansel and Gretel placed in second for the week with a weekly take of $12.83 million. That was down 49 percent from the film's opening week performance and places the film's two-week total at $38.08 million.

Zero Dark Thirty placed in fourth with $0.45 million. The Best Picture nominee from Sony was down 3 percent from Wednesday and down 31 percent from last Thursday. Zero Dark Thirty took fifth place for the week with $7.06 million and has now grossed $79.56 million to date.

Warner's Bullet to the Head rounded out its disappointing first week with a sixth place take of $0.32 million. The Sylvester Stallone vehicle was down a sharp 11 percent from Wednesday. Bullet to the Head finished in sixth this week with a seven-day start of $6.19 million. That was even softer than the recent respective one-week starts of $9.22 million for Parker and $8.53 million for The Last Stand.
