Weekend Box Office: Arnold's Comeback Didn't Go So Well


Your weekend box office:

1. Mama - $28 million, minus all the royalties that had to be paid out to Vicki Lawrence.

2. Zero Dark Thirty - $17.6 million, giving recent Golden Globe winner Jessica Chastain the top two films of the weekend as America catches Chastain Fever, killing many of the non-inoculated young and elderly.

3. Silver Linings Playbook - $11.4 million, climbing up from the tenth spot as the film spread to nationwide release. Now the country can fairly, truly judge if the better actor is Daniel Day-Lewis or Limitless star Bradley Cooper.

4. Gangster Squad - "$9.1 million," muttered Ryan Gosling, using some kind of old-fashioney voice of his own invention.

5. Broken City - $9 million. Man, that city was so broken, you guys! As is Schwarzenegger's acting career: his so-called comeback film The Last Stand opened in tenth with just $6.3 million.
