By Daniel Gates | 9:29 am, January 27th, 2013BOX OFFICE
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is on pace to top a slow weekend at the box office, with the updated Brothers Grimm fairy tale-turned-action movie debuting to approximately $18 million.
Horror flick Mama should take second place with $13 million or so.
Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty are in a tight race for the #3 spot, with both movies tracking toward about $9 million.
The new Jason Statham-Jennifer Lopez movie Parker will be fifth, opening to $7 million.
It looks like Django Unchained ($4.8 million) should hit #6, ahead of a pack of movies all projected to finish around $4 million — new comedy release Movie 43, and dramatic holdovers Les Miserables, Gangster Squad and Broken City.
