Hansel & Gretel Tops Weekend Box Office

By Daniel Gates



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.
