‘Warm Bodies’ #1 on Monday with $1.25 Million

on February 05, 2013 by Daniel Garris

Warm Bodies led the way on Monday with $1.25 million. The zombie comedy from Lionsgate and Summit was down 61 percent from Sunday. That represented one of the day's larger daily declines among wide releases, a sign of the film being less effected by the Super Bowl than most other films on Sunday and is also due in part to the film's sizable teenage audience. Warm Bodies has grossed $21.61 million in four days, which is in line with expectations. The film is currently running a slim 2 percent behind the $22.05 million four-day start of The Woman in Black last year at this time.

Paramount's Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters took second place with $0.87 million. The 3D action horror film starring Jeremy Renner was down 53 percent from Super Bowl Sunday and down a solid 40 percent from last Monday. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters has grossed $35.54 million in eleven days, placing it 24 percent ahead of the $28.73 million eleven-day take of 2005's The Brothers Grimm.

Silver Linings Playbook placed in third with $0.63 million. The Best Picture nominee from The Weinstein Company fell 46 percent from Sunday and only 12 percent from last Monday. Thanks to its exceptional holding power, Silver Linings Playbook has grossed $80.63 million to date. That places the film $12.99 million away from matching the $93.62 million total gross of 2010's The Fighter.

Fellow Best Picture nominee Zero Dark Thirty claimed fourth with $0.435 million. The Sony release was down only 35 percent from Sunday, as it rebounded from the hit it took from the Super Bowl. Zero Dark Thirty was down 32 percent from last Monday and has grossed $78.11 million to date.

Warner's Bullet to the Head rounded out the day's top five with $0.433 million. The Sylvester Stallone vehicle fell 46 percent from Sunday. Bullet to the Head has grossed a very soft $4.98 million through its first four days of release.
