Summit Entertainment was wise to release this zom-com over Super Bowl weekend, knowing that young women would rather watch a love story (even one with a dead guy) than watch a ball bounce around a field. The decision paid off to the tune of $20 million.
Silver Linings Playbook
This is really the perfect movie to see on Super Bowl weekend, considering its football plotline. If only the Philadelphia Eagles had made it to the New Orleans Superdome, it would have been art imitating life. SLP touched down with $8.1 million this weekend.
Holding on like a mother, this stylized horror flick scared another $6.7 million out of audiences, proving Jessica Chastain's scare power.
Zero Dark Thirty
Sony's torture pic ransomed $5.3 million over the weekend, no doubt boosted by the controversy over what really went on in the CIA. Despite Ben Affleck winning Best Director at the DGA awards Saturday night, Kathryn Bigelow still has a shot at an Oscar.
Bullet to the Head
Sylvester Stallone plays a New Orleans hit man in this brutal, man-cave film that boasts graphic violence. Americans spent $4.5 million on this action film, just in case the Super Bowl wasn't violent enough.
J-Lo's recent crime drama brought in $3.2 million this weekend. It's still too early to tell if Parker star Jason Statham will be able to heist another leading role.
The music and live singing make this homage to disease and death one miserable evening at the cinema — and we love it! Les Mis pickpocketed a sustainable $2.439 million.
With the recent re-inauguration of America's first black president, Barack Obama, the timing of Spielberg's film couldn't be any better. This biopic added $2.412 to its surplus.
